Since 2008 I have dreamt about hobbit houses. To create a community of eco-friendly hobbit houses where people live their ordinary lives. This dream lead to an education called”Business development in building technology” at Chalmers University, Gothenburg. Today I’m working at PE Arkitektur, an architectural firm in Visby and are designing different buildings every day.
On this blog you will find all there is to know about hobbit houses. Where they exist in the world, what defines an eco-friendly hobbit house and how they look like. The goal is to find persons (hopefully humans) who also wants to live in hobbit houses.
My name is Pontus Jakobsson and I’m born and raised in Visby on an island called Gotland. Today I am 27 years old and when I don’t design buildings, I dance salsa, practicing the martial art Shorinji Kempo, watching movies and playing computer games.
Finding new solutions that leads to a an sustainable lifestyle but in the same time living like in a fairy tale is what I want to create. To create and design hobbit houses for others than hobbits, preferably humans.
PE Arkitektur which I work at have approximately 90 employees and is located in Visby, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö. My co-workers and I design everything from hen houses to residences, stores and hospitals.
With this blog I hope to discover what should be included in a hobbit house and find people who wants to live in it.
