Scandinavian architecture is all about picture frame window instalments and whitewash. The Atrium House by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter is no exception. The building overlooks the Baltic sea and is designed about an enclosed atrium courtyard; functioning as a sheltered outdoor room. Inspired by the structural simplicity of Gotland Island (Sweden), "the elements required for everyday functions have been reduced to a minimum". How wonderfully, typically Scandinavian.
