Family holiday homes don't get chicer than the Archipelago House. Built by Norm Architects, the architecture and interior design "embody both Scandinavian and Japanese aesthetics." In other words, the house is the epitome of cozy minimalism.
The Copenhagen-based firm designed a quarter of pine-wood volumes that seamlessly blend with the surrounding vegetation. All have gabled roofs, communicating a rather rustic sensibility. The interior design of the space relies on natural materials and muted colorways, facilitating a pared-back aesthetic. From the handleless oak cupboard to the stone tiles, the stylistic decisions remain true to the Scandinavian-Japanese fusion.
In addition, Norm Architects worked closely in collaboration with Karimoky Case Study—a sister brand of Japanese manufacturer Karimoku—on some of the furniture choices that adorn the interior of the family holiday home.
