Swedish architect Andreas Martin-Löf has designed this beautiful family retreat in the archipelago near Stockholm.
Back in 1917, a Chinese-style tower was built on the six hectare plot overlooking the shipping lane towards Stockholm. The tower got company by a single-storey, period-style addition in the 1960s. In 2015, Swedish architect Andreas Martin-Löf has completed a new building using design elements that relate to both the original tower from 1917 and its 1960s extension. This new architectural solution forms an ensemble of elements from three different eras. The two-storey house is placed on a sloping site of a steep hillside. Architect Andreas Martin-Löf has designed the lower level with a little entrance hall as well as bedroom, bathroom and a sauna. A staircase leads up to an open room containing kitchen, dining and living area. Placed on a concrete plinth, the family retreat was primarily built of a steel structure along with timber walls and much glass.
The glazing was attached directly to the structure. A long terrace with infinity pool is a striking feature of the new building.
