mahabis architecture // john robert nilsson arkitektkontor, minimal summerhouse
freedom is why we love minimal aesthetics, and this modern summerhouse by architects john robert nilsson arkitektkontor is just our type of summerhouse. flat, dark lines, set against an open vast landscape.
located in sweden, at the stockholm archipelago, this modest-sized home features high ceilings, glass walls, and an uncompromising attention to detail.
the bold materials used in construction provide a clear visual separation from the rocky landscape. the long elegant stairway to the water sharply contrasts the rocks in form and in color and appears to hover gently above the ground.
the large glass windows looking over the islands mirror the transition from the patio to the perfectly still infinity pool. wow. look at that infinity pool!
simplicity, elegance and confidence. i can imagine mooching around this summerhouse in my mahabis watching the sunset and waiting for the new dawn to rise.
“Dusk, is just an illusion, because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are; there cannot be one without the other, yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it feel, I remember wondering to be always together, yet forever apart?” - Nicholas Sparks
