Embedded in greenery with just minutes to bath cliffs, forest, and boat bridge awaits a charming oasis we discovered on Skeppsholmen, located in Saltsjöbaden, Sweden on the coast of the Baltic Sea. The residence was designed by architect Karl-Johan Palmstam, of approximately 1,616 square feet (150 square meters) in an open floor plan with large windows surrounded by patios where you can observe the sun from morning to evening. In the heart of the home are two lounges in open plan to the kitchen with a generous dining area.
Tasteful colors, details and materials selection creates a beautiful combination. The home has wood floors, fireplaces and large glass areas inviting nature. A modern and functional kitchen with white cabinetry features a fireplace and output to a fabulous terrace. There are two bedrooms and a separate bathroom. On the site there is a guest cottage with garden supplies in close connection to the main building. In connection with the terrace is a large greenhouse of 247 square feet (23 square meters), where you can catch a small glimpse of the water.
This unique home is situated in the Stockholm archipelago in Sweden, designed by architecture firm Tham & VidegÃ¥rd Hansson Arkitekter. The residence offers 1,399 square feet (130 square meters) of living space, emerged in dense foliage landscape of the archipelago right on the water. The objective of the architects was to offer within a simple frame â€“ a platform and several diverse readings of the relation of space to nature. Conceived as a light weight construction in wood and glass, this summerhouse is built in the outer Stockholm archipelago. The horizontal character of the black stained exterior relates to the verticals of tall grown pines and the mirrored views of the Baltic Sea. The geometry of the plan is generated by the specifics of the site, the house being fitted into the flat surface between two mountain rocks and turning simultaneously towards the sun in south and frontally towards the sea in west. With the small rooms placed in the back, the social areas of the house stand out as an open platform crisscrossed by sliding glass. The zig-zagged layout also creates a series of outside places sheltered from the strong winds. Via

The House of Ruins is a family house which can be found in Latvia on the coast of the Baltic Sea. ThisÂ very unique dwelling has beenÂ constructed into the interior of 19th century ruins in a traditional Latvian barn. Architecture firm NRJA used the idea of contrast, where wind from the sea is opposed to the warmth of the family, and perfection of glass is set against the rough surface of old stone. The 2,152 square foot house provides both, modern life comfort and quietness of the surrounding nature. The salvaged home has been organized on one level; it also contains a small courtyard and a spacious roof terrace for watching the sea and surrounding meadows. We love how this house uses an existing structure to hide, in both landscape and against the strong winds, creating a new habitable interior. What do you think of this unique dwelling? Via

This unique house with sea views is located in a quiet neighborhood of Valdemarsvik, Sweden. The home was constructed in 1900 and has been carefully renovated to preserve its old charm. The transformation included beautifully exposed beams, windows with deep niches and wood stoves.
The home has two levels; each level is 657 square feet (61 square meters) at a total of 1,313 square feet (122 square meters). The feeling of the preserved charm of the house is unmistakable. At the same time, the house has been modernized and is a very high quality accommodation. The kitchen features new elements mixed with preserved original details like the beautiful wood stove. The living room has a beautiful white fireplace as a focal point. With a circular and open plan lounge on the ground plan that creates a wonderful atmosphere. Wooden floors and walls are mixed with painted white wood panels. This stunning Swedish home is for sale here.
The exterior facade of the home is sheathed with corten steel plates (this steel has a combination of high strength and excellent resistance to atmosphere corrosion and is used where weight reduction and reduced maintenance cost is a consideration). A brown rust-tone structure is harmoniously joined in a soft, calm tone of the Baltic Sea. All the tall windows and doors can be closed off by perforated steel with automatic shutters. The interior echoes the exterior, open design and rough texture in the industrial style. The brickwork has been covered with white paint, so that the texture is visible. Also finished are all the new load-bearing walls and ceilings. Reinforced concrete ceiling panels and beams have only been slightly restored and maintained almost to its original appearance. Bearing rails on the ceiling of the original bluish color have been washed and covered with furniture wax. Via
