Designing a house, a place to live in has been a recurring topic in our creative sessions at the office. About two months a go we found an architectural competition organised by the Dalsland region and the Swedish architects organisation. The task in the competition was to design a typical house to meet the needs of a modern family’s lifestyle living in a rural region, through a sustainable, modern and innovative architecture to attract more people to build and settle in Dalsland and western Värmland. The aim is also to challenge the shore protection and preservation of the many lakes in the area, and to promote the region that is located close to bigger citys like Oslo, Karlstad and Gothenburg as an attractive living environment. We decided to take this challenge and to participate in our very first architectural competition. Our proposal ”Blå ögontröst” was awarded 3rd prize, which made us very happy.
