THE ARCHIPELAGO HOUSE PROJECT

The Archipelago House Collection has its native setting in summer house located on the unspoiled and rocky coast of Sweden. The summer house is modernized holiday home embracing all aspects of family life.

Norm Architects designed the house with a focus on using and embracing natural materials, muted colors and clean lines - striving to create a minimal, yet well welcoming and curated interior. All of which has been combined with high quality craftsmanship and beautiful handmade pieces to make up the third collection of Karimoku Case Study.
