This project Villa Ladybird designed by architect Johan Sundberg is situated in Beddingestrand, between Ystad and Trelleborg, on the south coast of Scania. An area surrounded on one side by the sea with a backdrop of trees, the climate in this area, bitterly cold in the winter but with scorching summers and little vegetation, meant that the architect had to plan taking all of these elements into consideration. The house built as a small seasonal dwelling, but one that in the future could be used all year round, has been built on the old elevated shore line giving it a majestic view of the ocean, and at the same time protecting the house from the rising water levels. The house itself has been built with two narrow wings in an open angle which creates views, but at the same time helps to protect it from the wind and also from the neighbors. The inside of the open atrium form of the house has gliding glass and aluminum door, leading out to the spacious terrace. The construction has a protruding roof which has been tapered so as not to hinder the interior views, the façade clad in Siberian larch and finishing touches in anthracite zinc .The structure based on a wooden frame is reinforced by steel. The interior modern and light with wooden floors, the decoration in line with a summer dwelling, white being the main colour, dabbed with black to give a total contrast some modern art to add some detail and you have made a house into a home.
