Trigueiros Architecture designed this modern villa in Sweden’s Värmdö to tread lightly on its protected natural surrounds.
The house appears to ‘float’ among the trees thanks to its stilted steel base, which elevates its boxy volume above the rocky slope below. Exteriors are clad in larch, which has weathered since its construction in 2016 and has taken on a silvery hue that blends with the nature reserve that encircles the building.
