Located in Stavanger, Norway, Casa Kolonihagen by Tommie Wilhelmsen was developed as a summer vacation home. Accommodating only a small bedroom and living area, the project reflects the modern Scandinavian way of life—neither too flashy nor too 'common,' with balance being a major principle of the design.

Believe it or not, this contemporary architecture gem has only 24 square meters of interior space—probably not an issue for the owners, who likely spend most of their time outdoors, amid the beautiful green surroundings.

Despite the home's simplicity and low cost of design, the interiors are warm and welcoming. A beautiful deck leads the way towards the entrance, which gives on to the main living area. With a white and blue color palette, this room exudes intimacy and cheerfulness simultaneously. A white chair in the middle takes you to the comfortable suspended bed—a creative idea we fell for instantly.
