Constructed with prefabricated steel and concrete modules this 200m2 home is built on asteeply sloping site in an island suburb of Stockholm. Because of the sloping site and the close proximity of the neighbors we chose to camouflage this rather large volume under a sledding ramp and a roof terrace, making it extremely discreet from the road.

Using passive house principles, the structure is heavily insulated, as air-tight as possible and employs a high-efficiency heat exchanger to maximize energy efficiency.
