House Expansion | Övre Gla, Sweden | 24H> architecture
Project desciption This extension is to an original cabin from the 1800’s, located on the shore of the lake Övre Gla in the nature reserve Glaskogen in Sweden. According to Swedish building regulations it is not allowed to make an extension that exceeds a maximum floor area. A second priority for the building regulations is its proximity to the border of the estate, in this case the extraordinary location along a stream, which forms part of the site boundary. The building should stay 4,5 meters clear of the site boundary.
