Summer House

August 26th, 2010

Although this seems more like a shelter for camping than an actual house, I do find the shape of the structure rather interesting. The architects Tommie Wilhelmsen and Todd Saunders created this shape so light would enter easily. The materials used were organic; the walls insulated with recycled paper while the rest of the house used a combination of larch and plywood.

I probably wouldn’t stay there for more than a few nights while out camping because of the lack of appliances. So it makes me wonder if anyone actually lives there permanently.

    Lovely but no toilet and no kitchen….I wouldn’t call it ‘house’, it’s not.

    Yes, and there are similar Scandinavian concepts for those houses we call in Sweden for “Friggedbod” which means cabin or garden shed. Another concept from Sweden is called “Sommarnöjen” ( ), the other one has just started and its name is “Add a room” ( ).
