Kaggeboda house by Kolman Boye

In contrast to the uninviting exterior, the interior is almost white, being made almost completely out of waxed white birch plywood.

Inspiration from the architect:

Built on a common deck acting as a massive plinth, rising out of the moss clad grey granite, these three minuscule buildings placed close together make up a summer hideout, the deck flowing in-between them acting as an inhabitable fourth room.
