Concrete, corten steel and pine have been used to create this low-maintenance, ocean-side villa. The site, on an archipelago near Stockholm is very scenic but the environment is harsh and unforgiving. Summers are short but pleasant while winters are cold and windy.

The “H” shape offers shelter from the region’s strong winds.

By utilizing an ‘H’ shape, the design offers sheltered spaces available for leisure for much of the year. The design allows a third of the covered areas to be outdoors with the main verandah having an open fireplace making the area functional in autumn and spring.
