House Tumle

Located outside Gothenburg, Sweden, House Tumle – designed by Johannes Norlander Arkitektur – exemplifies the meaning of black and white living. With an area of 168 square meters, the two-story building is profoundly distinctive as it perches on a knoll overlooking the North Sea.

The white interior – a complete inverse to the corrugated, powder-coated black aluminum exterior – has a humbling ambiance that projects an unassuming sense of repose. The windows are placed in an abstract, almost capricious manner. I particularly enjoy the subtle instances of black around the bookshelf, window borders, and light fixtures. I also like how the glossy concrete floor discretely reflects the white walls and outside surroundings.
