It’s that time of yr in Scandinavia when everyone is falling more than themselves to enjoy the lengthy-awaited hotter weather conditions (we are speaking 16 C/ 60 F now – we will consider it!). While some will be looking ahead to hanging out in their yard or regional parks this financial institution vacation, there are other folks who will be biking across town to their ‘kolonistuga‘. Nestled on koloniområdes or ‘allotments’, these, little and generally simply-adorned cabins provide a excellent option to improve your individual veg and loosen up in a eco-friendly oasis with out heading out of town. In spring the water and electric power are turned on for the period and the allotment communities spring to lifetime! This wonderful allotment cottage in Slottsskogskolonien, Gothenburg is a perfect instance. Found on a plot much from the highway, the 27 m2 / 290 f2 cottage presents all the silence and stillness of the countryside as properly as comfortable beds for an afternoon siesta or overnight remain – a legitimate oasis!
The exterior offers the effect that the cottage is rooted in the previous, so I was to some degree taken back when I observed the inside pictures! On closer evaluation however, the cottage was truly constructed in 2020 and the older look lends by itself to upcycled home windows and doorways – a superb nod to the prior assets on the plot.
The house owners have extra modern-day comforts and modern day touches these kinds of as marble countertops in the kitchen and a wood burning stove by the sofa. Nevertheless, to use the loo and shower you’d need to have to navigate the brief length to the communal toilet nearby.
I love how the wooden flooring has been painted various colours which aid to carve out zones inside of the open up-strategy house. The storage is also definitely intelligent – doubling up as area dividers.
For the duration of the working day, the twin beds double up as seating to type an indoor eating location.
In a natural way, the most crucial function for an allotment cottage is the garden. This charming location positive aspects from a experienced backyard garden with plum, apple, and pear trees as nicely as favourites this sort of as roses, tulips and daffodils and the a lot more strange Japanese snowball, Amer maple and flowering dogwood crops.
Who demands a country estate when you can have a eco-friendly oasis ideal there in the metropolis centre?
