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 . Above: The roof is coated in simple tar paper and the thin plywood eaves feature integrated aluminum gutters, coated in black. Above: Exterior trim is painted to match the siding. Above: A wood deck fronts the house. Above: The interior is entirely clad in pine plywood. Above: The simple kitchen features open storage and a trio of porcelain light fixtures. Above: More open shelving, and a perch for an Eames House Bird. Above: A ladder leads to a sleeping platform. Above: Photography by Rasmus Norlander .
