A Shelter On The Stockholm Archipelago

In a summer retreat designed for a young family, Stockholm-based architects from Claesson Koivisto Rune combined natural materials with modern, minimalist look to gently fit the structure into stunning landscape of Kråkmora Holmar island.

Designed for a family with two small children, the house overlooks the Baltic Sea and the stunning views on Stockholm Archipelago. The retreat follows the topography of the land and folds slightly in plan where a little ravine runs vertically to it. Being a guest house to the main structure, it measures 45 square meters, which is a limit of the local building regulations. As the main house is situated only eight meters uphill, the facade of the guest hat is closed from this side to keep privacy. However, all the other facades facing the waterline are open to the amazingly quiescent landscape.
