This beautiful island cottage near Gothenburg dates from the 1950′s and was completely renovated by Swedish architects Johannes Norlander Arkitektur.
The interior of the cottage is refinished with a beautiful natural pine that really takes advantage of the light coming from outdoors.
The exterior has been re-claf in tar-coated plywood, a traditional technique originally used to preserve wood on boats. The eaves and gutters were also painted black to continue the simple look of the house.
The cottage was originally from the mid century with an extension from the 1970′s and was completely run-down. The original building and most of the structure was kept and was slightly refined, keeping it’s original qualities intact.
We love the contrast of the dark wood exterior with the natural green landscape surrounding the property!
