Villa Sunnanö is a few hours northwest of Stockholm on land surrounded by an expansive lake, picturesque boulders, and greenery on all sides. Hans Murman, founder of Merman Arkitekter, told Dezeen, “We wanted to take advantage of the site’s unique conditions and make a dwelling with maximum contact with the surrounding nature and water but with respect to privacy.”

Each major room of the home features its own gable and patio, extended outward from the center of the structure. The view from inside is almost as spectacular as from the patio itself, as the vaulted ceilings frame the landscape in a breathtaking manner. Each point in the home receives unique sunlight throughout the day, as well, giving every room its own glow and character.

The roof and all timber cladding are treated with iron sulphate, which will help the wood match the surrounding grey hues as it ages. Additional features of the home include an existing log cabin that was renovated to be storage space and a footbridge extending from the central patio toward the lake.
