Plus House is a pre-fab two-storey house with the generic proportions of a traditional Swedish barn. Instead of windows positioned like regular “holes” along the walls, entire sides are glazed. On the entrance floor both long walls are glazed. On the upper floor the gable ends are glazed. Seen in plan, these two lines of vision straight through the building are perpendicular, like a plus sign. The result is a house with both familiar proportions and an unusual appearance. But, above all, with an extraordinary spatial flow. This is the first house we designed for pre-fab manufacturer Arkitekthus, in their catalogue named AH#001.
