Archipelago house consists of a compact volume with bedrooms in the back and an open living platform that embraces the surrounding pine forest and sea. Tall glass windows create a sense of interconnectedness with nature and permit plenty of natural light to illuminate the interior, although striking horizontal trellises diffuse this light, softening its impact.

Constructed out of black-stained timber, the Archipelago house has a layered sense of height designed to complement the tall pine trees outside. The interior design is gentle and minimalist yet retains all the comforts associated with a cottage home away from home, and a hanging fireplace keeps the place warm during chilly winters.
