Villa M7

Swedish sun deck: On a rocky ridge, with a wide view of the sea and the archipelago, Villa M7 blends naturally into the landscape.

Only 20 kilometres from Gothenburg, right next to the harbour town of Kullavik, lies Malevik, a small, quiet place on the rocky west coast. The elongated, blue-green wooden building with its many floor-to-ceiling windows and barrel-vaulted titanium-zinc roof occupies a box seat between the sea, the landscape and the horizon.
Originally built as the architect couple Ulrike and Detlef Rahe’s own home and studio, the living area is now rented out as a holiday home and offers up to six guests spacious, light-filled rooms and unobstructed views of the Nordic landscape.

The shape of the building is reminiscent of Scandinavian longhouses, enhanced by a barrel-like roof under which there is a second level. All the important living spaces are oriented towards the southwest, towards the sea, with large-scale, floor-to-ceiling glazing. When the windows are open, the inside and outside merge almost fluidly. The natural windows form a harmonious contrast to the colour of the wood panelling, which follows an old Swedish recipe and has been reinterpreted in subtle nuances. The surrounding terrace on the ground floor follows the contour of the rocks. Here you will find two dining areas for shared lunches and balmy summer evenings. On the upper floor, a building-length balcony not only provides shade but opens up another huge sun deck.

Inside, lots of daylight meets light parquet flooring, white walls and open sequences of rooms. Furnished with different furniture and fixtures that combine beech and birch wood with 15 colour tones. In addition to the two double rooms, there is an additional sofa bed in the music and library room, as well as plenty of space and room to spread out and come together. Thanks to the generous amount of light, a cosy fireplace and geothermal underfloor heating, Villa M7 is worth a trip all year round.

What to do

Hiking, enjoying nature, bathing and swimming, various water sports, horseback riding, cycling, golfing, tours to the archipelago, whose countless small and larger islands lie almost directly on the doorstep, excursions to Gothenburg, Varberg and Kungsbacka including diverse offers of culture, architecture and culinary delights, the west coast of Halland and Bohuslän is also easily accessible and offers many attractions, nature experiences as well as testimonies from the past.
