This gorgeous summer house by Copenhagen-based studio Norm Architects is located on the rocky coast of Sweden. It consists of four volumes with gabled roofs, a nod to the boathouse on the nearby shore, and with its pinewood cladding, it blends in beautifully with its surroundings.
The minimal interior is influenced by both Nordic design sensibility and Japanese aesthetics. It is muted and pared-back, with lots of natural materials, clean lines, and curated furnishings. There is a strong focus on quality, handmade pieces, and nothing is superfluous; everything serves a purpose in the space.
You will see furniture created by Norm Architects in collaboration with Karimoku Case Study, cone-shaped rice paper pendants and lantersn created bespoke for the project by Kojima Shouten, as well as a black Vipp kitchen.
I am loving how composed and serene this place is. Notice also the exquisite details throughout, making it a perfectly-finished, flawless home.
