Architect André Pihl's alternative house design for this Swedish summer home is bat-shaped. The reason for this is that he sought to create a structure that would embrace the inspiring scenic views of the Swedish archipelago. Dubbed 'Villa G,' André Pihl's alternative house design is fully glazed, darkly painted and exceptionally modern. The idea was to create a "refined and calming ambiance" for the site — a quiet space that offers breathtaking panoramas of the southern horizon of the Baltic Sea.

The building plan incorporates "three interlocking diamond-shaped volumes." The communal spaces are within the middle portion of the bat-shaped dwelling, while the private wings on either side of the alternative house design contain bedrooms, bathrooms and small lounge areas.
