A summer vacation home on a small island is indeed a dream come true for all of us. But not everyone can afford to own a small island no larger than 5.5 hectares on the Baltic Sea! Nestled on one such rocky island and combining modern design and efficiency with the classic form of a traditional Scandinavian holiday cottage, this Summer House on the Baltic Sea Island is definitely one of a kind. Away from all the rush and owned by a family living in Helsinki, the gorgeous vacation retreat overlooks the rough coastline, the sparkling sea and the view beyond.
Facade of the Summer House on the Baltic Sea Island
Designed by Pluspuu Oy, it is modern logs without the traditional corners that shape the exterior of this exclusive getaway. Dark, dashing and surrounded by greenery, the façade of the summer house is both unique and elegant. Step inside and the picture is completely transformed with white walls, a serene color palette, large floor-to-ceiling glass windows and Scandinavian décor painting a picture of tranquil ease. Comfort is carefully blended with Nordic design simplicity and an uncomplicated floor plan as two separate structures spread across the island hold the living units and the Finnish Sauna.
