Beautiful Houses: Archipelago House in Stockholm
- Oct 12, 2012
I have been doing the Beautiful Houses post for a while now, and I am also a big fan of architecture. And although I browse architecture related sites looking for inspiring houses, every single day I get impressed with new architectural master pieces.
Today we will show you the beautiful Archipelago House, a project by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter. The shapes, wood, colors, huge glass panels and the clean style of the house create a modern and cozy place, certainly a great place to live ;)
Description from the architects:
A light-weight building in glass and wood, a summerhouse in the Stockholm archipelago. The layout of the plan is generated by the specifics of the site. The house is placed on the flat surface between two mountain rocks, and turns simultaneously towards the sun in the South and frontally towards the sea in the West. Movement, ambiguous spaces and light. With the small rooms located in the back, the rest of the house stands out as an open platform criss-crossed by panes of sliding glass. The zig-zag layout also offers several outside spaces sheltered from strong winds. The house is organized in layers, the big rooms expand with an open relationship to the wooden deck.
