Stockholm based practice Tham & Videgård Arkitekter have designed a vacation home located on the tip of a small island of Krokholmen in the outer archipelago. The maintenance free vacation home features a tent-like structure built using curved glulam beams.

From the architects, “The exposed location very close to the shoreline, occasionally experiences strong winds, which made demands for a house that could take full advantage of the beauty of the site but also offer secluded and protected outdoor spaces.

It is a wooden construction with curved glulam beams that rise with an arc shape to form a light and tent-like ceiling over the interior rooms. A base of in situ cast concrete is attached to the protruding bedrock and extended outside the house to provide an outdoor space for socialising on a generous terrace facing the sea.

The facades outside the living room and the master bedroom diffuse the light and create an outdoor garden shielded from the wind. An untreated trellised wooden facade turning a natural grey over time, runs around both the indoor spaces and the small courtyard.”
