Archipelago House by Tham & Videgard
On an island in the far reaches of the Stockholm archipelago, a quaint, contemporary summer home overlooks the waters of the Baltic. The Archipelago House by Tham & Videgard is set within the nature of these Baltic isles, where pine trees rise and soft soils sink toward the water’s edge. It is a visually stunning work of architecture, a parallelogram figure divided amongst private rooms that zig-zag throughout its interior. Each room is aimed toward the water and islands in the distance, comprising a sweeping panorama that is this home’s entertainment. The exterior of the home features slatted geometric patterns that provide privacy and a visual texture that tracks the sun with pleasant shadows inside and out. A long patio invites its inhabitants out into the Swedish summer to enjoy the tranquil environment that is close, but far enough, from bustling Stockholm. In total, a masterful work of architecture by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter.
