House for Mother is a minimal aluminum house located in Linköping, Sweden, designed by Förstberg Ling. House for Mother is a house that balances spatiality with intimate rooms – formal simplicity with strong materiality. The facade in raw corrugated aluminum creates a variable play with light and shadow during the day, a rich materiality contrasting with it’s simple expression. The wooden beams and trusses along with the walls lined with plywood give warmth to the interior. The concrete floor is a durable and beautiful surface for everyday use, folded to a low bench along the perimeter of the building.
