THE SPRIRIT OF THE 1960'S
During the first half of the 1960s, there was an economic boom in Sweden and the rest of the western world. The industries were booming and the demand for labour was huge. The housewife disappeared as an ideal and labour left the countryside for the cities. Villa construction had its real breakthrough. Yes, there are many technical steps forward and time is afterwards considered as “prosperous times”.
ARCHITECTURE IN THE 1960´S
The villa architecture was characterized by rationality, industrial production and economy. The villas were decorated very sparingly but the creators worked with contrasts and different facade materials such as limestone bricks in combination with dark wood. Most of the villas were built by house builders with prefabricated wall elements. In addition to prefabricated houses, architect-designed villas were also built with care for details and high material quality.
EXTERIOR DOORS 60´S
The entrances with exterior doors in teak or oak were lavish, unlike the rationalism and economic thinking that prevailed at the time. The entrances were often on the long sides of the villa and often consisted of a front door with side lights. The exterior doors were panel doors or grooved plain doors without glass openings, the light came in via the side light.
