Late Modernism: Myresjöhus

The home shows the great opportunities inherit in the buildings of the seventies, with its big windows and more open floorplans. In Swedem the materials popular in these late modernist buildings, such as various bricks (mexitegel), stained wood, glazed ceramic tiles and concrete/stone mixes are frowned upon and considered "ugly" by most. But just as we see a growing accceptance of the functionalist architecture of the first half of the 20th century, it is only a matter of time until the spotlight will shine upon the qualities of the sixties and seventies.

This couple has done the best with their 1972 pre-fab house, leaving many original details, while sensibly upgrading it to modern standards. The house, its furniture by Wegner, Mogensen and Jacobsen and their new black-stained kitchen from CPH Square all resonate perfectly in the modern, scandinavian, traditions.
