If you have felt that private residences in the countryside are getting larger and larger even while serving a small family, then you are definitely not alone. It is a trend that has caught on among homeowners across the globe in the last decade or so and shows no sign of slowing down. While we do love our share of grand, luxurious residences that feel just opulent, bigger is always not better. And in the case of a single-family residence, it leads to an unnecessary waste of resources and forces the owners to spend much more than they really need to on maintenance. This is why the Vallda House in Sweden comes as a welcome change!

Designed by Fabel Arkitektur, the house occupies no more than just 163 square meters and yet feels spacious on the inside. With an open plan living area, large kitchen and lovely dining room that offers smart views, the single-family house delivers just want its residents desire. On the outside, it is cross-laminated wood treated with black tar that give the home a traditional Swedish appeal, and with a minimal, Scandinavian approach to design, everything here feels elegant and understated.

Through the entire building, there is a sightline and a corridor. The bedrooms are small but with great views of nature. The entire volume of the building is extended with a roof to create a large protected place outdoors, with fireplaces on both sides of the façade.
