Located on the edge of a 10m drop into a gorge in Vindo, on an island on the Stockholm archipelago in Sweden, the properties south / east exposure was dictated by the ridge topography. Architect, Max Holst, created the most of the place by designing and constructing a wooden single storey property that sits on black concrete plinths. This elevates the home into the trees, supplying an eye level view of the mostly Pines. This tree home impact is continued with the interior of the home clad almost completely with wood. On the exterior Dark timbers clad the façade and a sheltered deck leads to the living zone of kitchen, living and dining spaces.
Off of the home’;s deck, a walkway continues on to a little shed that is stacked higher with firewood. Even the shed has a fireplace and wrap around decks for views down into the gorge below.
On the other side of the home a brief flight of stairs leads down to a sheltered deck. Here the barbeque station is set up and just subsequent to the deck, an additional stack of firewood is piled neatly amongst two of the trees.
The wrap around deck is covered in the very same wood used on the exterior decking. Right here the view into the canopy of trees is really spectacular and the balustrade that surrounds the deck is kept clean and straightforward so as not to interrupt the vista.
The wrap around deck is clearly visible by way of the windows of the living zone. The interior is clad in clear-coated tongue and groove wood boards so as to blend harmoniously with the forest-scape beyond the residence. The furnishings are kept to the exact same tones as the wood flooring, walls and ceiling to assist emphasize the green of the trees and continue the tree property impact.
The kitchen cabinetry is veneered in far more mid tone woods and the counters are a black solid surface. The only pop of colours comes from the counter tops, the vent pipe over the stove, the dark brown pendant more than the dining table and the pillow on the couch. The exposed beams supply a repeat pattern that is picked up in the pillow.
A wide hallway leads from the living zone to the sleeping location. The hallway doubles as a play location for the youngsters whose bedrooms are connected to it.
Acting a buffer amongst the living and sleeping sections of the residence are a bathroom and sauna. The two space Sauna is a holistic place to loosen up and unwind, even though still enjoying the treetop views from the lounge area
The walls in the hot area of the sauna are clad in wood with a black walnut stain whilst the wood floors hold their light all-natural finish.
At the far end of the hall is the Master Bedroom. The property owners have chosen to maintain the spacious room uncluttered, furnishing it with only the needed products of bed, bedside tables and lighting. The straightforward minimalist strategy to this space enables the homeowners a place to unwind and relax ahead of drifting off into a blissful slumber surrounded by nature.
