Modern Swedish Homes – Scandinavian Summer Cottage Design

Swedish architectural dream team Tham & Videgard Hansson Arkitekter designed the modern Archipelago Home, nestled among the islands near Stockholm, Sweden. This lightweight Scandinavian summer cottage of wood and glass is largely inspired by its location, boasting dark woods and a low-profile form, a strong vertical presence and windows galore to take in the spectacular view. A series of staggered rooms characterize this modern Swedish home, facing the sun in the south and the sea to the west. Public living areas occupy the front of the house, facing one another with their exterior walls of windows, while bedrooms and private living areas are tucked quietly toward the back of the house. Floor-to-ceiling windows flank the front of the home, opening onto a spacious angled deck that unifies the zigzagging floor plan while providing a connection between indoors and out. Interiors are bright and modern, designed with an eye on nature and a nod to chic urban influences. Tham & Videgard Hansson Arkitekter
