Ralph Erskines Lådan
Ralph and Ruth Erskine’s first home in Sweden is a 20-square-metre house full of ingenious designs. The house, known as Lådan (or box) was moved to Lovön island in 1989 and is now open to the public.
After moving to Sweden, Ralph Erskine built his family home during the cold winter of 1941-42 in Lissma, south of Stockholm. The 20-square-metre Box, as the house became known, is an example of ingenious design in small spaces, with a focus on function and flexibility.
Asli Abdulrahman and Marcia Harvey Isaksson have drawn inspiration from the soft, round shapes and material tactility of vernacular architectures.
