SUPERHOUSE

Superhouse is a brand and an ethos – a vision for what is possible in contemporary residential architecture.

Superhouse has been created by Magnus Ström, founder of Ström Architects, based on the South coast of England. Inspiration for the Superhouse concept first came when Ström worked next to a world renowned naval architect. This was when Superyachts were first brought to his attention, and it raised the questions: “Why couldn’t houses also reach the same heights of design quality and workmanship?” and “Why do ‘Superyachts’ exist, but ‘Superhouses’ don’t?”

Our mission is to design such Superhouses, and focus solely on their creation without the distraction of other industry sectors. We will do so through having a holistic approach; not just to the design of a Superhouse, but also to the individual lifestyle out of which each house will be born. When a Superhouse is commissioned, the investment is not just in a design for a home, it is the design for this lifestyle. We don’t only provide the architecture, we provide the thought and process behind all the complimentary elements that go into delivering a completely unique Superhouse, anywhere in the World. We want Superhouses to be the most beautiful, unique and design-led houses possible, but for them all to be created through a very close working relationship with their owners. We want to design their dream home.

We are only going to design 30 Superhouses in total - much like a limited edition series of art or watches. To emphasise this, each house will have its own number discretely engraved somewhere into the façade. The concept house featured on our website will begin the series by being named S 00/30.
