Villa Mecklin: A weekend Retreat

July 28th, 2010







As of lately I’ve really felt the need to detach myself from working and take a vacation. I think I may have found a very cool place to do just that. This villa in the Finnish archipelago looks like a place where you could just relax and enjoy the cool summer breeze.

The house is built from timber that was left untreated giving it a very natural, weathered look. The best part about this house is clearly the deck. It faces south and has a fire pit with a retractable cover. I can’t think of a better way to spend an evening than roasting a marshmallow while watching the sunset from the comfort of your very own deck.

    Looks amazing. The deck is wonderful but that little side space with the two chairs and fireplace looks equally tranquil. Funny that my first thought was how much work I could get done there.

    This is so awesome! I love everything about that deck. It totally feels like the house was designed with the deck as the focus. I can’t believe that it has a retractable cover too! What??? That’s so rad!

    Awesome house. Born and raised in sweden but now living in Mexico, this house brings back a lot of memories.. Swedish/Norwegian/finnish archipelagos are truly amazing places.
