Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Located around the lake Gärdsken, Alingsås, Swedish-based studio Unit Arkitektur AB have completed an aluminum cladded house on a residential area with villas mainly from the 20th century. The owners of one of the few houses left intact wanted more space as well as renovating the existing house.
The house is founded on masonry walls. The bottom floor is constructed of 220mm beams while the roof is supported by glulam beams. As the facade material was chosen 3 mm anodized aluminium plates applied with stainless recessed screws on an adjustable framework of galvanized steel profiles. All sheets are prefabricated at the workshop. The extension is heated with floor heating.
Aluminium can be utilized with a raw or anodized surface. Eventually raw aluminium forms an oxide layer, but it’s just one-hundredth as thick as is achieved in anodizing. It also makes a more organic impression with streaks from running water and a living surface. An advantage is however the ability to bend the raw aluminum on the construction site.
The eye-catching pattern on the gables is a plant motif that are developed by the architects and translated into digital manufacturing drawings; also laser cut at Riboverken. Laser cutting can be done to a certain thickness. Aluminium is available in a variety of alloys and because they wanted a small bending radius, an anodizing alloy 5005 is chosen.
