Architect: Arkitektstudio Widjedal Racki Bergerhoff

Now say that 3 times fast...

Arkitektstudio Widjedal Racki Bergerhoff (WRB) is a small design firm based in Stockholm, Sweden. They have a wicked talent for seemingly simple designs (often the most difficult kind), that harness the power of materiality and site. One of the aspects of their designs that I enjoy the most is that each one seems so livable, and 'of' the site. They seem to link a person to place, and provide for them the ability to fully inhabit the space. Something many firms could benefit from, and perhaps should strive for. Their formal gestures backed up with beautiful details run parallel to my own design ideals.

----UPDATE----
Soon after writing the post, I found out that WRB has recently moved on/split up, a practice that is not typical, but not all that uncommon in architecture. They have now formed two separate practices; ARKITEKTSTUDIO WIDJEDAL RACKI and BYGGFENOMEN

H-House-------------------
The private residence built in the Stockholm archipelago with amazing views to the ocean. The shape of the house, which give it its' name, allows for two private courtyards, with a large amount of veranda space under the roof overhand. Rusted steel, concrete, supple glazing, untreated pine (to weather beautifully), and oiled wenge wood are the primary materials that come together to make the project beautiful.
