Swedish Beach Home by Elding Oscarson

View all 10 Photos

Designed and built by Elding Oscarson, this Swedish home overlooks Mölle’s once-scandalous beach, where men and women were allowed to socialize and swim together. The house’s smooth, clean lines create a new, contemporary way of appreciating the sea and the yard’s romantic details, including a rock walled garden and an old ice cellar built into the hillside. Encased in glass, the lower level of the house allows natural light and scenery to permeate the living room and kitchen. The upper level is definitely more private, being clad in Douglas fir. Yet, the large windows allow the residents to admire the outdoors from any point in the house.
