Built for a family of five, the gabled cabin is perched on the rugged island of Viggsö off the eastern coast of Sweden. Wooden stilts elevate the structure into the tree canopy, helping to obscure the building from view while allowing for panoramic seaside vistas. A tight budget and the remote location also necessitated a restrained and minimal design with materials that could be transported to the island. Related: Affordable Polycarbonate Cabin is a light-filled vacation home in Chile A pitched white corrugated metal roof with a translucent corrugated plastic extension tops the building, which is built from untreated and exposed light-colored timber. Glazing wraps around the building to let in light and views. The ground floor comprises a 40-square-meter space with a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and a double-height living room that opens up to a 20-square-meter outdoor terrace. A 20-square-meter loft is located on the upper floor. + Arrhov Frick Arkitektkontor Via Dezeen Images by Mikael Olsson
