AMMARNÄS

Far up north in Sweden, cut away from big cities and busy lifestyle, lies the country village Ammarnäs. Surrounded with extensive forests and mountains we find this cut-away site. A famous hiking trail, Kungsleden, runs along together with the far reaching river Vindelälven. Due to heavy snow and no road maintenance during six months of winter, a snowmobile is necessary to reach the site. Our clients are very active hunting, skiing and all things outdoorsy, so it was important to create a house that united the indoor with the outdoor, together with spaces that need cover but not heat - for working. Since it is a active family, access is important and an played a main role in the design. As well as participating in the wildlife and nature here, protection and respect towards bears and moose, heavy snowfall, extreme temperatures and the earth created the this house.
