    ‘House for Mother’ by FAF // Linköping, Sweden.

    18th July

    This beautiful house-to-be is designed by Malmö-based architecture studio Förstberg Arkitektur (FAF).

This work-in-progress residence is located on a 325sqm site in the Southern Swedish city of Linköping.

Oriented to the park in the north and the alley in the south, “House for Mother” is a reflection of it’s neighbourhood plan, which incorporates a variety of housing types into relatively small blocks of land.
