It truly is that time of yr in Scandinavia when everyone is slipping over on their own to delight in the very long-awaited hotter climate (we are speaking 16 C/ 60 F nowadays – we’ll get it!). While some will be looking ahead to hanging out in their garden or regional parks this bank vacation, there are others who will be biking throughout town to their ‘kolonistuga‘. Nestled on koloniområdes or ‘allotments’, these, small and frequently just-decorated cabins offer you a best option to mature your own veg and chill out in a green oasis without the need of heading out of town. In spring the water and electric power are turned on for the year and the allotment communities spring to everyday living! This beautiful allotment cottage in Slottsskogskolonien, Gothenburg is a great case in point. Located on a plot much from the road, the 27 m2 / 290 f2 cottage gives all the silence and stillness of the countryside as very well as comfortable beds for an afternoon siesta or overnight remain – a true oasis!
The exterior presents the effect that the cottage is rooted in the past, so I was to some degree taken again when I noticed the inside pics! On nearer examination while, the cottage was really crafted in 2020 and the older look lends itself to upcycled windows and doorways – a great nod to the previous property on the plot.
The house owners have extra modern comforts and up to date touches these types of as marble countertops in the kitchen area and a wooden burning stove by the couch. Having said that, to use the loo and shower you would will need to navigate the shorter distance to the communal toilet nearby.
I love how the wooden floor has been painted unique colors which support to carve out zones in just the open up-plan space. The storage is also seriously clever – doubling up as area dividers.
For the duration of the day, the twin beds double up as seating to form an indoor eating region.
Naturally, the most significant feature for an allotment cottage is the back garden. This charming put benefits from a experienced yard with plum, apple, and pear trees as very well as favourites such as roses, tulips and daffodils and the much more unconventional Japanese snowball, Amer maple and flowering dogwood vegetation.
Who desires a state estate when you can have a inexperienced oasis proper there in the metropolis centre?
