Villa Overby by John Robert Nilsson Architects

Minimalist Home

Swedish architects John Robert Nilsson have completed Villa Overby in Sweden. This house is like came out of a fairy tale. Very clean, very white, absolutely stuning jewel. The owners of the place had very high requirements in terms of design and precision of implementation. Simple shapes and lines are consistently pursued. It is a technology-intensive house, like a piece of civilized life and order, placed on a boulder ridge, surrounded by forest.

The house with large glazed windows points towards the sea. The entrance side is highly contrasting – it is a plastered wall where the only hole contains the entrance door. For the construction of the home are used a few materials, such as limestone from Gotland, ash which is silvery white, white painted walls and ceilings.

The contact between inside and outside is reinforced by the fact that frames are almost missing. The architects have also designed the surrounding soil and modern an overflow pool set in stone blocks.
