Wiklandsbacke is a series of 12 houses that are being designed by Sandell Sandberg in the coastal village of Kivik, Sweden.

According to the architects, the building permission was strict and only allowed a roof angle of 45 degrees. To create an interesting spacial experience, they divided the houses into different units that could be perceived from the exterior to be completely different houses. It’s kind of cool and makes a connection to the old town of Kivik with small houses and narrow alleys.
