There are countless ways to make an architectural project optimized to its picturesque environment, and what the Archipelago House does that is so clever is to provide a pair of lovely vistas to the most important rooms. This would have been a much tougher task for a larger undertaking, yet it is still commendable that three interior spaces can be arranged to look over the same two gorgeous views.
The floor plan of the Stockholm dwelling has a distinctive zigzagging facade that features floor to ceiling windows. These have been positioned to draw sunlight inside throughout all hours of the day and wonderfully frame the stunning seascape beyond the beautiful rocky site. The Archipelago House by Tham & Videgard Arkitekter demonstrates how built geometry can aid one's appreciation of an organic landscape.
