Summer Hide-aways


Stockholm-based Sommarnjen (Summer Enjoyment – or Entertainment – in English) has just unveiled the designs for five new beautiful 15-square-meter second houses. Sommarnjen houses are designed by Sweden's top-tier architectural offices Kjellander + Sjberg Arkitektkontor, Sandellsandberg Arkitekter and Tham & Videgrd Hansson Arkitekter.


Sommarnjen provides the houses ready-built on site. Some are suitable for year-round use as well. The mini-houses are also great as additions to a larger dwelling – as guest houses, studios, workshops, separate bedrooms and of course, saunas. For those of us with Scandinavian backgrounds, these cottages look like home. They look perfectly suited to join the thousands of tiny cottages that dot the small islands, rocky seashores and lakesides of Scandinavia where people take July off and also spend every weekend from April till September (or more) at the cottage, rain or shine.
