Minimal Coastal Retreats - The Stockholm Summer House Mixes Japanese and Scandinavian Design (

Monday, June 18 2018

References: & uncrate The timber-clad cottage from Kod Arkitekter on Sweden's largest archipelago island called the Stockholm Summer House combines Scandinavian design with Japanese architecture to create a minimal coastal retreat. Comprised of a traditional cottage as well as a brand-new construction, the home is connected by a shared roof to create a luxurious covered terrace. Surrounded by both the sea and forest, the home is a contemporary reflection of the surrounding natural setting. With patios, windows and entire sections of the home placed purposefully to look out onto the view, the home looks as though it was made to support indoor/outdoor living. Lined with rustic pine, light plywood and other natural materials, the Stockholm Summer House emphasizes simplicity and a calm aesthetic.
