This project is Helhetshus´s first own developed, housing project. The goal was to build 8 houses that felt exclusive regarding architecture and design, yet affordable. The site is located in Floda, 25 kilometers northeast of Gothenburg, Sweden. It´s a clearing on a hillside with large oak trees and a beautiful view of lake Sävelången. By using the existing conditions of the site and placing the houses halfway over the edge of the hillside; each house got a nice view towards the lake and at the same time it created more space on the sunny side of the plot towards southwest. The boomerang-shaped building leaves an open space towards the street and a more secluded garden space south of the building witch is maximised by placing the buildings as far north as possible on each plot.

Dutch architects of BBVH were looking for a solution to give future buyers of their serial housing projects more influence on the layout and size of their homes. BBVH does not want to design homes for the average families of 2,31 person, we want to design homes that fit. Having seen one too many floor plans with the same layout, too small to fit a big family, too big for couples without kids we thought of a different solution.

This retirement home is being built in Monconseil’s Urban Development Zone (ZAC in France), in the northern suburbs of the city of Tours, where this building will be one of the first footprints in the area. The project, which consists of 81 beds spread across three units, was defined from the beginning by specifications that sought to take up and organize an ideal amount of the site’s surfaces. Respecting these specifications to the letter would have led us to a ground floor organization around internal courtyards spread over the entirety of the site.

Extract from “Architecture as bonus”, Paul Ardenne
The construction of the housing project at 45 rue Louis Blanc in the 10th Arrondissement of Paris is the result of a project launched in 1998 by the Paris city real-estate authority. The property developer was expected to take a piece of land measuring about 600 m² and replace an abandoned squat there which had been slotted for demolition with a low-cost building that adhered to the HQE (High Environmental Quality) standards still being determined at the time.
