The Island House of Stockholm, Sweden

The Stockholm-based Island House by Widjedal Racki Bergerhoff Architects is a simple summer house with floor-to-ceiling window views of the forest and the lake.

The Stockholm-based Island House by Widjedal Racki Bergerhoff Architects is a simple summer house with floor-to-ceiling window views of the forest and the lake. The natural scenery is its wallpaper, while the rest of the interior is adorned with slatted wood and white inner walls.

While the layout and technique of the home may be contemporary, the focus of its furnishings is on comfort and relaxation. Beyond the main section of the home is a large wooded lot that terminates on the shore of its lake. There is a second structure on the dock that includes a wood burning stove, fitting for a guest house or an office for the home’s occupants.

It’s no doubt that the Island House is the best way to escape from busy Stockholm and to enjoy the nature beyond it, we’ll need to see it. [WRBArchitects via Arkinetia]
