Architect Visit: Johannes Norlander in Sweden

May 23, 2011

First spotted on Dezeen: the Morran House by Stockholm-based architect Johannes Norlander, a renovation of an existing 1950s cottage on a rocky island in the Gothenburg archipelago. Using techniques borrowed from ship building (the exterior is clad in tar-coated plywood, a strategy for protecting wood from the elements), Norlander has created a simple, economical summer cottage with a modernist Japanese look. To see more of the architect’s work, go to Johannes Norlander Arkitektur.
