House on Krokholmen – Tent-Like House

Swedish studio Tham & Videgård Arkitekter has designed a tent-like house on an island in the Stockholm archipelago. House on Krokholmen features the curving zinc-clad roof reached a height of 6 meters (19.7 feet) at its apex. The house measuring 135m² (1,453ft²) was completed in 2015.

The tent-like room and silhouette of the house connects to the idea of the least complicated way to spend time in nature, but it is also inspired by the older Swedish pavilion- and gazebo architecture, light buildings carefully placed in the landscape. The results often have a flavour of easy going summer life, yet sometimes surprisingly grand in their expression.
