Tallbacken is a new Scandinavian housing concept located in the forest outside of Stockholm. The concept is aimed at couples and families of mixed ages who want to live close to nature, but still around the city. What unites them are a common lifestyle that revolves around career, active leisure and time together.
In Tallbacken you live in the forest without losing the convenience of modern living. The project follows the conditions the nature provides, the houses float freely on pillars in the slopes to leave a minimal footprint on the surrounding environment.
The position, height and rotation of each house has been carefully planned to give the best possible view over the ocean. Facade materials are based on and reflects the surrounding nature.
The forest is your backyard.
