Sorry, I have not updated the blog very well in the past two months. I will shape up. There is basically no studio activity now, as most of the time is spent preparing for the start of our upcoming building project. I have briefly mentioned it in the past, but here are a few illustrations of how the house is going to look.
A computer rendering of the new house, placed in a photo, where the existing Villa Holsby can be seen to the left (only a small part of the house).
Another computer rendering of the house. The very large window is going to be our bathroom window! A challenge…
A colored drawing of the house as it will look from the south.
We will start moving the ground in August. The foundation and the core of the house will be concrete, so we will be busy working on that during the fall. After the concrete has been poured, we will basically let it rest and settle over the winter and then start with the walls, roof, windows, etc. early next spring. Expected completion next fall.
I will let you follow the project on this blog and I hope I will be able to do a painting now and then as well.
The architecture is done by Onix in Helsingborg, a Dutch firm that is now establishing an office in Sweden, www.onix.nl.
