Located on a plateau overlooking a small lake in Varberg, Sweden, the Forester's House blends in with its woodsy surroundings while also framing the views beyond. Built from cast-in-place concrete, it's comprised of two primary volumes joined by the entrance, with a tarred wood facade that folds underneath each form thanks to the open foundation. Inside, the fireplace and the exposed surfaces are made out of concrete, while the windows are trimmed in teak. Meant to age with grace, it should provide shelter for the forest's caretakers for generations.
