Sunna 3 by STEG Arkitekter is a casual hideout designed to peel away the stress of city life.
Dappled sunlight dances on a pathway of wood planks, coaxing visitors up through a narrow forest passage. The endpoint is obscured by a stand of tall pines with swimsuits dangling from their branches. It could be the entrance to a treetop walk or a path to a secret swimming hole.
In a way, it’s both. The passageway leads to the retreat that Tomas Haeger, a management consultant, and Tina Linde, an organizational psychologist, share with their two children on the island of Tjörn off the west coast of Sweden. The home, located within an hour’s drive of their primary residence in Gothenburg, is a cross between a tree house and a beach house. “We wanted it to look summer, breathe summer, and feel summer,” says Tomas.
Although the Swedish coast is known for its rustic red cottages, when the couple began looking for their summer home, they had in mind something quite different—a stripped-down modern space with high architectural standards, plus a jetty nearby for their boat and a launch for paddleboarding. And they wanted a sea view.
