Hygge Hus on the North Sea island of Föhr makes a traditional impression from outside – but inside it boasts a modern Scandinavian style and great attention to detail. Across its 140 square metres this house provides a large family-sized space for different activities. The living area on the ground floor is divided into the lowered sitting area and dining area by the fireplace, separated by a half-height partition. The interior kitchen is unusual, but well lit by a large glass panel leading to the staircase.
One bedroom is on the ground floor, the other three are up beneath the roof. But this upper floor is not just there for sleeping: there is also a sauna and a lounge corner in the hallway. The attic has a generous and airy ambience: you can look through a glass door into the double room, and the two single rooms can be opened with barn-like doors to the corridor. The high gables, the use of space through built-in cupboards, and the consistent white colour palette with black accents also contribute to this feel.
The house has a small garden surrounded by hedges with a terrace and – since you’re near the coast – a wicker beach chair.
