In theory, bungalows should be the simplest type of home, as a single story reduces the potential complexity that inherently accompanies multiple layers, but Tham & Videgard Arkitekter's 'Creek House' shows that to be a theoretical truth and nothing more. The isolated Swedish country home features a byzantine layout of randomly scattered brick volumes.
There are no less than 15 brick volumes that make up Tham & Videgard Arkitekter's design. These are roughly divided into three different wings that are all connected to the central living area, but that description belies the labyrinthian nature of the home as a whole. To be sure, the home has a complex floor plan, but one could argue that that adds to its sense of homeliness, as mastering that plan means deep familiarity with the home.
