Dream in Green: Small Scandinavian Summer Island House

Dream in Green: Small Scandinavian Summer Island House

Fashioned from a prototype prefab garden greenhouse, this garden shed sleeps two by night and engages its gorgeous natural environs on all sides by day.

Ville Hara and designer Linda Bergroth collaborated to craft the non-residential variant, while the latter creator went on to add solar panels, storage spaces and recycled brick steps to make a miniature glass house (or at least: three-season bedroom) for herself as well.

In standard Scandinavian style, a series of cookie-cutter pieces can come together in various ways – in this case, the core gable-roofed, wood-and-glazing element opens up views on three sides while shed-element clutter is kept to the back of the site, away from the waterside view.

Inside, a simple pine wood floor and single beside lamp and suspended light fixture keep the entire composition clean and minimal, focusing the eye and mind more on the lovely natural exterior and few elements (a vintage record player and some potted plants) of additive decor.
