Red Cabin Inspired by Traditional Swedish Barns
This house was built for a single father as he wanted a retreat for himself and his two children. This vibrant colored home is located half an hour north of Gothenburg on an open farmland.
The space is built just like a modern barn, complete with traditional barn doors. Plywood was used as the main material in most parts of the house, including the ceilings, built-in furniture, stairs, bookcases, and the walls.
Called Spackhuggaren, the space has an open-concept interior for entertaining and socializing. Concrete floors are used for the ground floor with glass windows to allow natural light. The exterior was painted a Swedish Falu-Red color, an homage to a traditional wood stain typically used for Scandinavian buildings.
Späckhuggaren, or House for a Drummer, is located just north of Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden beside open farmland. On the site, a barn and warehouse had burned down long ago but it had a clear influence on Bornstein Lyckefors’ design.
