Synvillan - The Illusion Villa
by Sandellsandberg Architects

Åke E:son Lindman

Sandellsandberg has created an elevated villa with steel plated walls.


Synvillan - The Illusion Villa, is a building that comes in shape from the traditional Swedish house.

The roof is made of reeds, and the walls are covered with a polished patterned steel plate whose reflective properties aim to create the illusion of a dissolved house, which disappears in nature.

The villa hovers over the ground above a dining area where animals eat. The residents can follow that scene just a few meters away through a glass plate on the floor.


This project has been longlisted in the hospitality building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
