Black is the New Orange

 

These sublime black beauties sprinkled along the shoreline on some island in the Stockholm archipelago were designed by Margen Wigow Arkitektkontor.  The contemporary structures, which serve as holiday vacation rentals, are all about timber, with a largely plywood-finished interior and a blackened timber exterior.  Take a look at these photos and tell us what you think on our Facebook page!

 

Five blackened timber structures dot the shoreline of a remote island in the Stockholm archipelago to form a holiday home by Margen Wigow. The house is fragmented into a series of smaller structures and is clad in broad boards of black-painted pine, a design that the architects based on the region’s traditional fishing huts. The five structures provide a main house, a guest suite, sauna, boat house and garden shed all set around a protected bay. The buildings’ mono-pitched roofs follow the gradient of the sloping rocks that form the plot and floor-to-ceiling windows face towards the water. The island has no electricity or water supply, so the houses are heated by soapstone fireplaces and lit with kerosene lamps. The limited resources and remote location meant that workers had to live on the island during the construction.
