stockholm-based firm tham & videgard have shared images of summerhouse lågno with us. in situ cast concrete volumes hearken to a boathouse typology characterized by a span of transverse gabled roofs. the pleated effect creates a sequence of varied room heights and open the possibility for a completely open living area. despite a relatively shallow room depth, the site’s waterfront views are invited into the white-and-ash interiors with a continuous band of glazing. sea and sky additionally enter the space with walls of sliding doors along smaller, north-facing rooms, and operable skylights from smaller pitched ceiling spaces. this is an architecture informed by the material palette of its context, with a weight and color that connects the form to the archipelagic granite bedrock that embraces it.

  • Lovely spot and refreshing design.
    Three cheers for not using any form of the word “sustainable” in the article. Thanks

  • Love the idea from the outside but sad to see that nothing plays with the height and the form of the house inside.
