Connected Through the Outside: Kaggeboda by AndrénFogelström and KolmanBoye

Kaggeboda by AndrénFogelström and KolmanBoye is a small and unique summer house located in the forest of the Stockholm Archipelago. Three cabins are placed in strict relation to each other, creating a diversity of both inside and outside spaces.

The blackened plywood of the façades gives a strong character and relates to the surrounding pine trees, a part of the Swedish wood building tradition. Generous windows create openings to the warm bright inside with its birch plywood walls, ceiling, and floor. The furniture built on-site and the high ceilings contribute to the feeling of serenity; the material creates beauty through its simplicity and accurate mounting.

The largest of the three buildings contains the wood-burning stove, a small kitchen, a bed, and a sofa. The second house has a study and guest room, and the smallest of the three is currently used for storage and has the flexibility to be changed into a bathroom.

The Kaggeboda project is like a small village or a house in three parts. It’s all about the connection to the outside, you have to go out to get anywhere or do anything. This summerhouse is very much about living the small life—being outside within moments of waking up or spending all day preparing a meal in the outdoor kitchen.
