Walking into this apartment in the heart of Gothenburg is penetrating a very complex and whimsical brain: that of designer Torsten Ottesjö. Borne out of the client’s desire to optimize space, Ottesjö together with Lars Isestig has transformed this apartment into an intricate, multi-leveled nest, comprised of two stairways, a bedroom, a bathroom with shower, a fully-equipped kitchen, an office, a closet, a living room guest bedroom and dining area—all within a mere 17m2 x 3,6m (183 sq ft x 11,8 ft).

More and more electrical vehicles travel the streets of Gothenburg, Sweden. Therefore the city asked KKA to design three charging stations serving electrical cars, bikes, mopeds and trucks. The loading stations should not only provide a practical function, they should also stand as symbols for a new more sustainable city.

The client had split his garden city plot in two and moved the old house to the one. The other had a more embedded position, including a big old oak tree in the middle.
The gross building allowance had to be fully exploited in order to create a large enough home for the growing family. The stipulated distance to the property line of course limited the positioning from the sides, while the desire to preserve the old oak tree blocked the middle.
