Development

Into the wild nature

In the area, homes are built to be integrated into the wild nature on the slopes above the cultivated valley. This forest is located on a southwest slope, with the magnificent sea below, which allows sea views from all residential areas with the fields as foreground. The sunsets just outside are beautiful. The many hours of sunshine and proximity to the sea provide a microclimate, extra favourable for cultivation. The intention of the area is to build a garden café in the middle of the valley.

The Factory becomes a place for crafts, inspirational design and interior design. Alternatively, condominiums will be built with the same theme as the rest of the concept. A larger boat harbour allows residents to have a boat or for restaurant visitors to add one. The plan is also to establish Landscape Hotel Rooms on the rocky hills above the valley and colonies in the valley.

Can you save energy while living in a more contrasting and sensible home and be more aware of your needs? What do you really need?

The “New House” is based on the need to be able to spend more time in your home, the need to be private and at the same time the houses have developed outdoor spaces, especially in connection with kitchen and bath areas. The accommodation area is reduced and the interior and exterior rooms are given equal importance. The “new home” has no definitions as “living room”, “kitchen”, “bedroom”… The different features of the home have different temperate zones, depending on the activity of the room. It is another way to save energy while living in more contrast and more consciously. To simply, live closer. Necessary needs, sensibility, energy consumption and nature.

The homes also have developed products from local materials and designs, such as wool interiors, which also act as sound absorbers. The homes can also have widescreen windows, to enhance the u-value and diffuse light, as well as built-in light chute that also function as sound absorbers.

Salthamn no. 5

Villa Meltem

Vila Melthem is situated in Salthamn, approximately 15 kilometers north of Visby and covers 2 kilometer beach frontline on the western coastline of Gotland. Here, Jacqueline Raymond, founder and owner of Salthamn has started to develop the area with organic gardens, Restaurant and Event venues, landscape accommodation and permanent living spaces as well as rental houses.
 
In the same way as the farmers lived and worked back in the days, Villa Melthem was built with the similar, where private and working is close together. One example of this is a rooftop Yoga Studio, with a separate external staircase entrance, leading up from the outside for immediate access for guests.
 
The building has been divided into several zones, where the different house volumes can be heated separately depending on accurate functions and needs. The northernmost room, a volume build in stone and has a plastered facade is, beside the Sauna in the house, the warmest room in the house. In the south, also build in stone with the same outdoor facade trimming features all amenities regarding water and recreation, such as sauna, a drop-in bathtub and an outdoor shower. The rest of the house is built mainly out of wood and glass. The Center of the house is dedicated to entertaining and social life with a double floor high ceiling, featuring the kitchen and a dining area.
 
Villa Melthem has well-developed outdoor areas and rooms that give you the opportunity to enjoy, not only the days, but also the season in a more efficient and longer way. The living area on ground level is 92 sqm and the total construction area covers 200 sqm, roof covered outdoor areas included. Moveable wooden shields are constructed to break the wind on the ocean front of the house.
 
A walking path connects the outdoor areas between the house volumes, behind the specially designed glass walls, keep both heat and cold isolated, also with the help of woolen shields from Lommakka. The shields also diffuse the light and makes it more soft. The wooden construction of the house is very much visible from the inside. This amplifies the feeling of living among the trees. The wild nature constitutes the garden around the house, with the ground covered in heather and between the pine trees you can see and smell the glittering Baltic Sea.

Two Terrace Houses

Villa Bergman

Villa Bergman is the second terrace house in Salthamn with developed outdoor spaces and with nature reaching right up to them and the house facade. The local nature is unique with a fantastic variety of species. The nature and buildings should strengthen each other, aesthetically and functionally.

Villa Bergman, just like Villa Boo, has materials that endure and age beautifully, which is part of the sustainability concept for Salthamn. Limestone floors, wood and textiles from local designers.

One of several houses

Villa C&L Salthamn

For the Salthamn area, two different building concepts has been developed. The first concept is the Terrace Houses, build in an area with a steep slope and few trees around. The houses are built as a single level house that is distributed horizontally.
 
Villa Boo and Villa Bergman are two examples of this concept. The Polehoses are planned in an area under the vegetation of the high pine trees where the intention is to keep as many trees as possible. The trees are close to the houses and the nature continues to grow and spread out under the buildings.
 
The outdoor areas such as terraces are built and constructed as bridges, connecting one terrace or outdoor space with the other. The houses are built vertically and some features two levels. They are often built as several house volumes connected together, which allows additional house volumes later on.
