Architect Max Holst designed and built this dreamy black cabin located in the Swedish Archipelago, which is only 45 minutes away from Stockholm’s downtown, though. In order to minimize it’s visual impact and blend it with the surroundings, Holst chose to paint it black. Also, he wanted to preserve the existing landscape as much as possible, so the house was lifted on concrete pillars. And finally, to maximize the connection with nature, the cottage was made from locally sourced wood. Inside, wide windows offer beautiful views over the forested landscape. The interior is minimal and mostly made from the same wood as the facade. A huge terrace extends the living room and opens even more beautiful views. Wooden stairs connect the cottage with a guest house with a sauna, hot tub and outdoor shower.
