The Juniper House designed by Hans Murman Architects is located in Gotland, Sweden. In Gotland Sweden the house becomes barely visible, mirroring its surroundings with its façade. From a centrally placed kitchen and living room you have the feeling of living in the nature. The façade is a playful comment on allowing modern architecture to be visual in the landscape. The house allows you to experience colour, texture, surface, material, transparency and light on and through the façades.
A photo of the existing junipers was used as the base for the tailor-made cloth that is 35 metres wide and 3 meters high and wrapped onto three sides of the house. The net vinyl cloth is put on a galvanized steel construction at a distance of 40 centimetres from the façade. On the north and south side of the house the cloth is extended for privacy and to hide the outdoor shower.
