Sundby Naturehouse

Greenhouse accommodation for families with children in Vallentuna, north of Stockholm. A 2-storey villa in load-bearing timber is placed in a greenhouse and thereby moved to a climate corresponding to northern Italy. The unheated greenhouse in tempered single glass protects the house from wind, rain and UV radiation and creates generous conservatories with fantastic qualities. The inner façade consists of a simple, horizontal oiled panel with sparse "trellis sections" for façade plants. A lush timber cube under glass.

The greenhouse enables a closed local cycle with plant beds that purify and absorb the nutrients in the wastewater and convert it into fruit and vegetables. The house does not require a connection to the communal sewer system.
