New home: summerhouse in Skåne, by LASC Studio

Youthful Danish architectural studio LASC’s first completed project is this summer house in Österien, Sweden. It’s a former traditional farmhouse opened up with the removal of many of the internal walls and the addition of a few more windows. It has a modesty of scale and materials that befits a place intended for rest and relaxation, but a cheeky exuberance in its use of colour that says “Woo! I’m on holiday!” There are a few ideas to take away here, including the bright hues used in unexpected places (doorways, staircases, storage), the informality of the mis-matched furniture, and clever small-space solutions like the extended windowsill doubling up as a perch for a laptop. Spotted on designboom.
