Kaggeboda by AndrénFogelström and Kolman Boye Architects
Kaggeboda is a small and unique summer house built with plywood. It is located in the forest of the Stockholm Archipelago designed by AndrénFogelström and Kolman Boye Architects. Both studios are based in Sweden developing aesthetic, environmental and culturally sustainable approaches in the art of construction.
Three cabins are placed in strict relation to one another, creating a diversity of spaces outdoors as well as inside. The blackened plywood of the facades give a strong character and relate to the surrounding pine trees, a part of the Swedish building tradition using wood. Generous windows create openings to the warm bright inside with its birch plywood walls, ceiling, and floor. Scandinavian décor has become ingrained in our concept of the modern home and Scandinavian wood architecture becomes one of the most well-known wood structures and interiors.
