Holiday Cottage, Sweden

This former fisherman’s boathouse in a fishing village on the East Coast of Sweden has been remodelled to provide a weekend home for the last fisherman’s great niece and her family.

The space for the fishing boat is listed and has been retained. Family accommodation is provided in the attic which was formerly used to dry the nets and to store fishing equipment.

Existing features have been restored to preserve part of the utilitarian nature of the original working building.
