Surfers House on the West Coast of Sweden

Surfers House on the West Coast of Sweden

Designed by Arkitektstudio Widjedal Racki in southwest coast of Sweden, the Surfers House is a dream vacation getaway for a couple and their two boys.

From the architect: This is our first built project on the west coast of Sweden, an ocean front with variations of rough rocks and sandy beaches. The clients in this case are devoted surfers who have spent many vacations abroad on surf sites. For their own house they now wanted to catch some of the sensation of easy surf life but placed in a Swedish context.

Much focus was spent on discussing the essence of summer living as well as the logistics of surfing. A large roof protected outdoor section holds storage for sails and boards as well as outdoor shower and racks for wet suits. Further board storage by the entrance adds atmosphere to the interior always visually present.

The social areas face the open ocean and are tightly connected to an even larger roof protected outdoor area which summertime serves as the main living room.

The white color scheme with white wooden panel and a bright concrete floor together with the roof lights help express the presence of the sun even in not so sunny summers, which are a bit too common.
