There are eight Timrarö Vacation Houses built on stilts on a rocky Swedish archipelago. The wooden and metal stilts ensure the smallest environmental impact while also affording spectacular views. Measuring 1,200 sq ft, each dwelling is topped by a large roof terrace for enjoying the sun, trees and marine views.

The Timrarö Vacation Houses were constructed with locally-sourced pine wood and feature an outdoor platform. The interiors are bright and filled with natural light thanks to expansive windows that also frame the spectacular surroundings.
