There are country homes, and then there are
archipelago homes
. Nordic architects are masters at building
structurally simple but visually striking homes that take advantage
of their remote seaside locations.

The Zartmann House does this to stunning effect. The breezy
summer home from Anders
Berensson Architects
perches atop rocks on the Swedish island
of Skarprunmarn. Building homes on archipelago can be logistically
tricky, but and Zartmann House faced a particular challenge during
construction. Not only is it surrounded by water, but the island
itself is so remote that it has no paved roads.

A helicopter dropped a kit of prefab parts on the island, and
the builders from modular housing company Sommarnöjen got to work
constructing the four-part house. The main home is split into two
rectangular volumes that are arranged side by side. A living room
and kitchen take up one rectangle, while two bedrooms and a
bathroom comprise the other.

Sliding glass doors at the end of the house open onto a wooden
deck where a raised walkway connects the main living areas to a
guest room and sauna.
