Small Summer House in Sweden Paints a Picture of Minimal Contrasts

A summer house that is modern, compact and nestled in the heart of nature, the Summerhouse at Söderöra is a perfect example of how you can escape your mundane life while still enjoying its many comforts. Designed by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter, this cabin in the woods of sorts nestles away from the constant rush and glaring lights of Stockholm and allows you to get closer to nature with its open design utilizing two floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors. The glass sections of the woodsy cabin also bring in ample natural charm while the dark exterior lets it blend in with the backdrop after sunset.

Step inside and you will see a large skylight at the heart of the cabin illuminating the entire space while décor and overall design of the cabin embraces Scandinavian simplicity. A single-wall kitchen in one of the corners of the cabin feels understated and modern while the dining area sits next to it snugly. A bright orange chair in the corner next to the window adds color to the setting with white taking over everywhere else. [Photography: Lindman Photography]
