For those of us who can't get over our Scandi crush, there's plenty more ogling to do, thanks to a new annual international "bookazine" from Swedish interiors magazine Residence. My Residence, bound in thick, matte paper, features some of the magazine's greatest homes in a seductive layout.
To celebrate the publication's debut, Yatzer takes us on a journey to architect Buster Delin's summer home, a minimalist "box" with glass walls on three sides. Located in Hälsingland in central Sweden, the Lundnäs House sits on an old foundation of granite that once anchored a ceramic stove factory. The back portion of the house incorporates brick and stone recovered from the site.
Delin designed and built the house over seven years as a case study, taking care to use local materials and making the home as efficient as possible. He experimented with solar heating, a central fireplace that would warm the floor, and a special wood roof. The house, which was built for two adults and four children, sits on a secluded patch of land by the river, making it the perfect, and certainly enviable, getaway spot.
