Swedish architectural firm sandellsandberg arkitekter AB has designed the Wiklandsbacke.

Completed in 2013, this project consists of 12 contemporary homes in Kivik, Sweden.

Each home features a traditional 45 degree roof angle, and is divided into several different volumes.

Wiklandsbacke by sandellsandberg arkitekter AB:

“In the costal village of Kivik we where commissioned to design 12 houses. The building permission was strict and only allowed a roof angle of 45 degrees. To create a interesting spacial experience we divided the houses in different units, the high ceiling makes the interior rather unique although its traditional shape.”

  1. Considering the plots are water front, the design ought to have been more interesting. The sober design is perhaps due it’s surroundings. OK.
