A wooden extension was built to the 19th-century Swedish summer house by two architecture studios Kod Arkitekter and General Architecture. The extension doubles the original 90-square-metre space which has undergone many changes over its lifetime. The new extension is clad in plywood panels that reflects the facade of the original building and also houses a lounge and a master bedroom.The extension also houses a new entrance hall that connects the old and the new building. To create a wholeness between the old part and the new extension, both buildings were painted with grey linseed oil. A kitchen and children’s bedrooms are located in the old cottage, while the living room with a tall bookcase are placed in the extension. Wooden staircase behind the bookcase, extends to the upper floor where the master bedroom with a large skylight can be found.
Check out another wooden extension to an old house in Senneville-sur-Fécamp, France, which was added by Antonin Ziegler.
