‘House for mother’ is made from two adjacent cabins, a home and a studio, that are slightly shifted from each other to make the most out of a narrow plot. All exterior walls and couple of gable roofs are wrapped completely in corrugated aluminum, a sturdy, durable and recyclable construction material that reflects daylight, making the house shine- literally. Although it’s undulated skin gives it a cold appearance, the home’s core is cozy and soft thanks to a warm color palette and natural materials.

The two cabins are united on the interior with a thick coat of white paint over the walls. The dwelling’s formal simplicity was balanced with warm, textured materials like cork, wool and plywood for the walls. ‘House for mother’ is Malmö-based Förstberg Ling’s first built house and started as a part of a housing exhibition in Linköping.
