This extension to an original cabin from the 1800’s is located on the shore of the lake Övre Gla in the nature reserve Glaskogen in Sweden. According to Swedish building regulations an extension is not allowed to exceed a maximum floor area.

A second priority for the building regulations is its proximity to the border of the estate. The building should stay 4 meters clear of the site boundary. In this case the extraordinary location is along a stream, which forms part of the site boundary.

Binding: 260mm x 235mm, Pages:    124, Illustrations: Full Colour
As a firm founded on the first day of the first month of the new millennium, 24H is a practice dedicated to engaging the technology and sensibility of our contemporary era, along with a commitment to produce architecture that both enriches and invigorates the built environment and its users at the dawn of the twenty-first century.

Still in its infancy, the firm has already been commissioned for projects in The Netherlands, the UK, Sweden and Germany. Although many of its projects are at design stage only, it also has an impressive collection of built work under its belt.

The projects in this book demonstrate how 24H Architecture employs creative solutions that incorporate decoration and an eye for detail, without straying from the authenticity of solutions produced by modern construction technology.
