There has been a perception for many years, not least abroad, that the strength and distinctive character of Scandinavian design and modern architecture lie in a sober, natural and non-flashy style.

In addition, the use of materials that are robust and so-called honest. That is, they do not care for anything other than what they really are.

This Swedish cottage project fits well with this description, and is in the same category as the minimalist cabin at Fosen.

Plywood all over

The over 60 years old Morran summer house to Johannes Norlander is located on Brännö in Gothenburg’s eastern archipelago.

Refurbished, refurbished and clad the architect’s cottage building with pine plywood é rpanel, both inside and outside.

Bright inside, night black outside

Inside, the veneer plates have retained their natural wood color, both as wall coverings and as constructive decorative elements.

Exterior is the trefiner treated with a traditional black tar.

The roof, including the plywood, is covered with black tarpaulin and with integrated hanging roof rails in black painted aluminum.

The color palette in the cabin is incredibly simple and consistent without getting bored for that reason.

Both the values ​​and materials used are excellent both to the surrounding, rugged coastal landscape, the gray-blue sea and the idyllic islets and cut right here at the entrance to Gothenburg harbor.

Respect for the landscape

– At an early stage, it was about tearing up the old vacation home and building a new and bigger one on the higher western part of the plot, Johannes Norlander says to Bonytt.com

These plans were dropped, although this would lead to a wider sea view than before.

A cabin higher up in the terrain would be much more exposed than before, both visually and in relation to weather and wind. The existing location near mountain ranges is definitely the most respectful in terms of the landscape, Norlander believes.

This is quiet conscious contemporary architecture

– This is an interesting project, comments art historian Nils Anker, director at the jugendstil center in Ålesund.

– During the renovation, the architect has managed to preserve the typical Nordic character of the cabin from the 60s to 70s. Johannes Norlander has actually taken it so completely with his very thorough and conscious updating of the house, the commentator believes.

Old Methods

The building is tar-treated, as it is centuries-old traditions here in the Nordic region, and this was a common treatment of outer panels in Norwegian recreation buildings up to the 1960s and 70s.

The roof is covered with roofing board in a simple and practical way, adds the expert.

The renowned interior of Morran reminds me of both modernism from the 1960s and the neo-functionalistic trends we see in today’s architecture, concludes the art historian.

Highest Ecology

– In addition, this project has a clear ecological character. Here it is both simplicity, natural materials and a nimble location of the building in the terrain. Thus, this Morran house of 80 square meters creates little visual noise.

– By the way, the same qualities as the cabins and houses designed by Norwegian architect Professor Knut Knutsen became known in the 1950s, concludes Nils Anker, Director.
