Summerhouse Skåne by LASC Studio

It’s not often that I venture to write about architecture but this house is too amazing. It’s a remodeled farmhouse in the Swedish summer retreat area of Österlen. The other homes in the area are traditionally robust and nest like to protect from the blustery weather, so the challenge was to keep the original fabric of the house while opening it up to nature. The original windows and floors were kept and two thirds of the interior walls were torn down. The space was further opened up by inserting large window openings with hidden frames that dissolve in the existing fabric. They limited materials to concrete, pine wood and white plaster. Shake it LASC Studio.
