A Scandinavian Summer Home Built for Surf, Sports, and Sun

By Iain Aitch
An adventurous family envisions a dream getaway on Sweden’s southwestern shore.

When Henrik Lepasoon first conjured up an image of his dream vacation home, the sketch in his cerebral cortex looked much like a cross between a selection of Case Study Houses and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion.
