Erik Persson of Stockholm-based General Architecture is a preservationist in the best sense; when it came time to build his own summerhouse, he found a derelict barn, dismantled it, and moved it to a more advantageous location. There's no electricity, no indoor bathroom, and a rudimentary kitchen. Above: Persson added a second level to the existing structure; the second floor is divided into two load-bearing walls that allow the first floor to be entirely open.
