Mid-Century Scandinavian home

This 4 bedroom home, constructed in the mid-sixties, has the horizontal lines, large expanses of glass and open floor plan that are typical of Mid-Century Modern architecture. It was updated in the late nineties with a renovation overseen by renowned Swedish architect Thomas Sandell.
Mid-Century Modern houses were less rigid and more organic than earlier forms of modernist architecture. People often perceive modern architecture as being cold or sterile, but this home feels quite cozy with its fireplace and wood paneled walls and ceiling. While there is a lot of window area, the dividing posts and solid wall above and below the windows provide a sense of enclosure that floor-to-ceiling glass would not.
