stockholm-based studio sandell sandberg has sent us images of ‘hökö’, their winning entry into the invited competition for a leisure village on the swedish island. designed for approximately 35 summerhouse residents, the project consists of a series of free-standing structures that include a restaurant, community buildings, and dwellings  placed in respect to the landscape.

the island, which is situated south of the village of trosa, has served as a recreational destination for various corporations throughout the years. the project aims to stimulate and enhance the seasonal business of hökö. each house is a 1.5 storey structure with a large kitchen and common area. expansive glazed surfaces allow the interior to visually correspond with its surroundings. finished in environmentally friendly paints, the facades are clad in wooden slats.
