The rich can now have bespoke houses tailor-made according to their preferences, much like the way they commission luxury yachts. UK-based Ström Achitects has introduced the new Superhouse brand that offers its clients a chance to make their dream home a reality, down to the minutest detail. What is more, the brand’s experts will strive to provide all the services right till the completion of the project.
Although affiliated to Ström Architects, the Superhouse brand will operate independently, and will likely be situated somewhere close to Hamphire, along the southern coast of England. The brand plans on designing 30 unique and one-of-a-kind Superhouses that are as exclusive as “a limited-edition series of art or watches”. Magnus Ström, the founder of Ström Architects and the man behind Superhouse, said:
The Superhouse brand exists to create the most beautiful, contemporary, bespoke, luxury private houses. That’s it. Nothing else. No commercial buildings, no art galleries, no housing schemes. Nothing but the most exceptional houses… you can be assured that there won’t be another house like it. Anywhere. Ever.
The firm has recently released a series of stunningly-detailed renderings of the first house, named S/001. Developed by London-based studio, The Boundary, the images showcase the building’s stunning contemporary design. Comprised primarily of a huge glass-lined linear block, mounted on two peripheral timber podiums, the spectacular seaside house offers breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. In addition to the expansive swimming pool present in the front, the incredibly modernist dwelling features an outdoor fireplace as well as the private moorings for a yacht.
While most of the engineering, lighting and interior design services will initially be outsourced to other companies, Ström hopes to eventually expand the brand into a “one-stop” store for luxury home design. To diversify their services, the brand will be working with Hamphire-based superyacht builder, Dubois Naval Architects. According to the developers, the ideal location for a Superhouse can be anywhere, from the picturesque Balearic Islands in Spain to a posh New York neighborhood, or even a remote private island. Each of the houses will sport a unique serial number on its facade. Ström added:
To design and own a Superhouse – something that is utterly yours – will be a dream that only a select few will realize. Your Superhouse will represent you, your lifestyle, your family, how you work and how you play. I see a lot of really high-end luxury contemporary homes, but to me, they most of the time lack architectural integrity. It’s an ambitious statement, but we want to design Superhouses all around the world.
