A summer shelter nestled in Kråkmora Holmar Island envisioned for a young family by Stockholm-based design practice Claesson Koivisto Rune follows. It uses natural materials to express a modern, minimalist look that elegantly inserts the establishment in the surroundings of the island.
The home overlooks the Baltic Sea gathering extraordinary views over the Stockholm Archipelago and it measures 45 square meters, a limit of local building regulations; this volume is a guest house extension to the main structure situated eight meters uphill.
The main facade of the guest house is closed to provide privacy while walls that face the waterline open up towards quiescent landscapes that speak of tranquility, calm and peace.
The extension attempts to elegantly match the surrounding topography answering with slopes to little ravines.
