Swedish summer retreat by LASC Studio



This beautiful and lovely summer house is located in Österlen, Sweden and it sits on a 105 sqm plot. It was designed and built by LASC Studio and it was completed in 2009. Österlen is a beautiful Swedish summer retreat. The house is a conversion of an abandoned farmhouse. Even though this is a conversion, the new summer house is a contemporary of nostalgia and contemporary elements.

The entire house is filled with light and it’s surrounded by nature. Unlike most houses from that area that are robust and traditional, this one is airy and it allows a beautiful connection between indoor-outdoor spaces. The clients wanted to preserve the basic traditional features but they also wanted to bb able to enjoy nature indoors so several changes had to made, like the large windows for example.

During the conversion, some of the elements were preserved, like the original floors and some of the windows, while two thirds of the interior walls had to be torn down. Large windows openings were also inserted. The materials used in the process were limited at concrete, pine wood and smooth white plaster.

The colors used are pale and mostly neutral, never bright. This is a simple and yet luxurious summer house that managed to combine traditional with functionality. The direct connection to nature was the elements that made it all possible.{found on archdaily and pics by Stamers Kontor}
