The house dates from 1959, designed for engineer Göran Sundin and his family, with the aim of bringing a piece of California to Sweden, throwing in some Scandinavian style along the way.

Judging by the photos we can see, not a lot has changed along the way. The extensive glazing is still in place, as is the open plan layout and so many period features. Everything from the fireplace to the amazing kitchen, not to mention the wood ceilings, the light fittings and the partition walls. Things have obviously been kept in good order, but without upsetting the integrity of the design.
