The Fagerström House is a curved L-shaped residence located in Sollentuna, Sweden, designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects. Desire was to provide large space to the growing family and at the same time preserve the old oak tree blocked the middle. That is how the The curved L-shape was born which gives the house an interior spatial flow and the curving also makes for an iconic and sculptural exterior. Another distinctive feature is the facade color which was an inspiration from the Swedish children's book ‘Where's the Tall Uncle’s Hat? ‘.
The house has two floors in its tall end. That’s where you find bedrooms etcetera. In the second lower end, the upper floor terminates with a balcony facing the interior living room with its high ceilings. The roof has a diagonal, pitch; from one end to the other and also backwards. This skews the house's gables but also makes for the constant changing of room geometry as one moves through the house.
The house's waistline houses the kitchen and, behind a bookcase, stairs. The kitchen thus is very much open while the stairs up to the more private spaces are more to the side. With its slow climb, the stairs gives a you a feeling of ‘proceeding’ rather than walking between levels.
The entrance floor is made of Carrara marble. The tiles are laid perpendicular to the main facade, even where the room bends (like a fan). An integrated blood-red bookcase and staircase flows into an equally blood-red wood floor upstairs. The bathrooms are tiled (floor, walls and ceiling) with different patterns from Marrakech Design’s collection by Claesson Koivisto Rune.
