Claesson Koivisto Rune sent us these gorgeous images of a new series of prefabricated homes that recently debuted in Oslo and Stockholm. The name Tind takes cues from the Norwegian term for mountain peaks in Scandinavia that have eroded over time so that they have rounded, soft edges. Likewise, each of the three prefabricated houses has a single pitched roof with cutouts that permit natural light to illuminate a bright interior finished with simple timber panels.
Working with Swedish manufacturers Fiskarhedenvillan, Claesson Koivisto Rune designed three bold new homes. There is a single story home clad in bold black panels, a double story version capped with a sloped roof that disguises the upper level and wrapped in white panels, and then a triple story home with a similar roof and a striking barn-red facade.
Each of the three homes boasts an open floor plan that allows for optimum flexibility, as well as extensive glazing that not only drenches the internal program with natural light but also blurs the boundary between the indoors and the outdoors. Having made their debut in Norway and Sweden, the Tind prefab series will next appear at Milan Design Week 2013. Also, major shout out to Peter Guthrie, who is responsible for the extraordinary imaging of these concept homes.
