The Strandwood House at the marina of the fishing village Gager was inspired by the traditional boat houses on the Baltic coast used for the storage and maintenance of ships. With its simple structure and the larch façade turned grey by weather and wind this newly built wooden house fits in perfectly with the backdrop of the harbour. Just as the island landscape the house is characterised by nature, peace, clarity, air and light. Large, custom-made Danish windows let the sun inside. The main room with a living, dining and kitchen area features an open gallery and has a ceiling height of almost eight meters. Natural building materials, the interior in Scandinavian minimalist style and the calm colour palette create a casual, relaxed atmosphere.
