A barn-like house composed of wooden blocks, the retreat was designed to maximize the experience of the surrounding landscape. Each room features a huge window and faces different direction, exposed towards the lake and trees. Hence, every space in the house has an access to a framed views. “To reduce the scale and to allow clear definition of the functions of the building, the wings end with patio spaces that allow you to take advantage of the light and views in different directions,” say the architects. Apart from that, Villa Sunnanö features a sauna and an old log cabin that has been remodelled into a garage.
