House under the pines

On porous sand dunes covered with mosses and lichen, a new residential area is being established for holiday homes and sports cottages just next to the Norrbottnian archipelago gateway.

The sea is found approximately 200 meters from the site visible between the tall and narrow trunks of the surrounding pine trees. Like the traditional sport cottages the house functionalities are distributed in smaller house units with its main features in an oblong that settles naturally into the landscape — oriented along the loomed shore line.

The house units are connected through a wooden deck constructing the main walkways and outdoor social spaces, leaving the rest of the moss covered plot undisturbed.
