This holiday cabin in Sweden by architect Mikael Bergquist is clad with untreated timber that will fade to grey as time passes. The building has a gabled roof and overhanging eaves, which reference the traditional local architecture. “The traditional Swedish farm house is deeply rooted, almost as an icon,” Bergquist told Dezeen. ”I wanted to combine this typology with a modern way of living, in close contact with nature.” A large living and dining room is located at one end of the house and has sliding glass walls that open it out to a surrounding deck.
