The special landscape of Jomfruland requires simple and clean lines. The choice of materials became obvious – wood and pebble.
This is the same cabin
Newly Renovated Traditional Cabin
This cabin never needs to beiss
The cabin became new to 50. 000
The pebble cottage was built in 1961, but was taken over by the new owners in 2002, who lived there for a couple of years without doing anything about it.
That it should be rehabilitated and expanded, there was no doubt, but we wanted to live it in before we decided what to do, they say.
– We quickly discovered that it was located correctly. When the sea is raging and waves and wind blows inward of the island, it is well laid for the throws.
While the cabins further up on the island must withstand the spray of spray, the pebble cabin is completely free.
Towards the Sea
The cottage was originally 42 square meters and lay on the southeastern and hardy side of the island, almost reproduced by knotted and sprawling vegetation and without electricity and water and after many years of decay it was in a sad constitution.
– The cottage was very rustic, smiling the owners. “Here we needed both rehabilitation and new thinking. In addition, it was really the smallest for a family of four. On the other hand, it had a fantastic sea position.
The owners wanted to preserve the shape of the pavement cabins and facade and add an extension.
After some meetings and sketch proposals, the new cabin began to take shape.
– We all agreed that the architecture of the new cabin should be seen in conjunction with the special landscape at Jomfruland. There could not be any flashy cabin. Tomta demanded simple clean lines and the whole had to be diminished and natural, says architect Sigurd Bothner who added the sign.
Much had to be replaced
However, the old cottage was in bad condition. It was necessary to change both the floor and the ceiling. The walls had to be insulated for winter and the old fireplace was dismantled.
In addition, it was also uncertain whether the walls would withstand the load of a new, insulating roof.

With expert guidance from the architect and with a skilled entrepreneur, it nevertheless remained resolved.
On an axis parallel to the sea, there is now a bathroom, dining room, kitchen, common room and bedroom.
The living room is located in an adjacent building, perpendicular to the axis and pushed forward to draw the panoramic view.
– Location matching is a keyword when it comes to the design, says the architect. “It was also important with good outdoor spaces that have views, lights and shelter for the wind.
Today the cabin is 100 square meters.
Harmonic and Functional
The decor is simple, open and functional.
In the living room there is a cylindrical wood burning stove with a long pipe rack up to the ceiling.
On each side of the fireplace there is a clear view through large insulating glass windows.
The bedrooms are small, compact and functional and contain exactly what you need in a full cabin.
The kitchen is centrally located with one entrance to the sea and one towards the forest.
Outside the forest entrance, an outdoor kitchen has been set up for the grove work when preparing fish and other self-seafood..
– We are very pleased with the result. The desire for a rugged, airy and harmonious building that fits well into the terrain has now become a reality, describing the owners.
