Böste Strandväg is located in Böste, a small village in southern Sweden. It's a village of around 100 inhabitants, half of them only live here in the summer months.
Most of the houses in Böste dates back to the 1800 century and the majority of them are whitewashed. Böste is known to be the best preserved fishing area in Skåne. The last commercial fishing stopped in 2008.
Böste is also located only 3 km. from the southernmost point in Sweden, Smygehuk.
The interior of the house is reflecting its position in the landscape and in a small historical village. We have added new elements in a clear geometry as a contrast to the old and crocked house, also highlighting the beauty in both the old and the new.
We have worked with natural elements and materials to bring natur inside and letting the house breathe by applying lime wash instead of paint.
The floor is pine wood grown in the low temperatures in the north of Sweden. Due to the low temperatures it grows slower creating closer and stronger grains, and a light red color to it.
