comments: this modern townhouse sits in stark contrast to its neighbors in this rural town in southern sweden. despite the contrast, it seems to fit in well with respect to its proportions and its openness. the design is beautiful in how it uses the space on each of the three floors. light reaches every level because of the expansive windows and because none of the levels is completely closed off from the others. this also allows for double and single height ceilings which gives an open feel to the space. even the walkway from the bathroom to the roof terrace is made of metal grille which lets in light and adds to this open feeling. all of this is even more amazing knowing that the structure is only 16 feet wide yet has such an open, expansive feeling. amazing indeed.
