The cabin has been adapted to the terrain and weather conditions in the archipelago.
It is not uncommon for architects to use special house and roof shapes to adapt to the maximum to the terrain. Some are close as citizens and protect themselves from the weather, others open up to the view, the summer sun or the sparkling winter weather, such as this glass and gray stone cottage on the seater volcano and the well-managed mountain cabin project from Skaara Architects makes.

Two cool flies
The curved summer cottage you see here lies low on a sparsely grown island in the archipelago.
Skaara Architects divided it into two mature building units. The largest includes the residents’ living zones, and in the second unit are the bedrooms.
These two volumes are then linked with a third element; an idyllic patio. It lies in shelter, almost wherever the wind comes from.
In addition, a glass sliding door can close the living room from the southwest.
Dynamics in the Strait
– The 100 square meter building body is laid as a range of direct orientation towards the sea, says the architects.
The shape is dynamic and with a wedge-shaped plan and a roof shape that generously embraces the bay in front of the building.
And the living zone is oriented directly towards Jomfruland, which looks a little forward in the sound of the southeast.
This summer cottage that was completed in 2008 cost 3.5 million kroner and is a so-called replacement cabin for an old who was on the pitch.
– The plant also has a new outbuilding and a rehabilitated brewery, deepening the architects.
A beautiful and environmentally friendly mosque
The roof is also special. There is a roof with cover of prefabricated plant mats. These consist of different species of mosses and dry-drying, water-absorbing and water-saving plants from sedum or birch family.
The advantage of such mosetak is that they are not only beautiful and alternate in color and expression with the seasons, but they are also good for the environment. The sedum plants are like a buffer, catches about. 50 percent of rainwater that otherwise flows instantly and can create flooding in the surroundings, says the architects. In addition, the sedum roof insulates the building in an excellent way, and the low weight of the plant roofs is also an advantage, they mean.
The downside of a sedum roof is that you should not wear it when the plants are frozen. You should also be very careful when dragging away snow from such flowering ceilings. If you forget this, the growth can be easily damaged.
A natural combination
The fur coat is iron-white-treated. This is a traditional, affordable product for untreated exterior walls that many special architects like to use. Jervitriol does not significantly protect the tree, but the substance speeds up the graying process and gives the wood a burnt, silverish appearance.
The use of iron vitriol presupposes that the tree is of good quality and has a high proportion of core grain.
We want to prioritize the environment
The architects behind this cottage project believe it is important to have a modern environmental profile, and want ecology and sustainable development incorporated in all its projects.
Architect Kim Skaara was co-author of the book Cabins and Environment in 2006. It showed 39 examples of an environmentally oriented leisure area.
