It can be that time of year in Scandinavia when everybody is falling more than them selves to appreciate the prolonged-awaited hotter temperature (we are talking 16 C/ 60 F currently – we are going to consider it!). When some will be looking ahead to hanging out in their backyard or area parks this lender holiday getaway, there are other individuals who will be cycling throughout city to their ‘kolonistuga‘. Nestled on koloniområdes or ‘allotments’, these, small and frequently simply-adorned cabins give a great opportunity to expand your own veg and rest in a green oasis with no heading out of town. In spring the h2o and electrical power are turned on for the time and the allotment communities spring to lifetime! This beautiful allotment cottage in Slottsskogskolonien, Gothenburg is a perfect example. Situated on a plot much from the street, the 27 m2 / 290 f2 cottage delivers all the silence and stillness of the countryside as effectively as comfortable beds for an afternoon siesta or overnight remain – a genuine oasis!
The exterior offers the effect that the cottage is rooted in the previous, so I was somewhat taken back when I saw the inside pictures! On nearer assessment though, the cottage was essentially designed in 2020 and the more mature visual appearance lends alone to upcycled windows and doors – a wonderful nod to the prior assets on the plot.
The proprietors have added modern comforts and contemporary touches such as marble counter tops in the kitchen area and a wood burning stove by the couch. However, to use the loo and shower you would want to navigate the quick length to the communal lavatory close by.
I like how the wood ground has been painted different colours which enable to carve out zones inside the open up-approach house. The storage is also seriously clever – doubling up as room dividers.
In the course of the working day, the twin beds double up as seating to type an indoor dining spot.
In a natural way, the most essential aspect for an allotment cottage is the garden. This charming put gains from a experienced backyard with plum, apple, and pear trees as perfectly as favourites these as roses, tulips and daffodils and the far more uncommon Japanese snowball, Amer maple and flowering dogwood vegetation.
Who needs a country estate when you can have a inexperienced oasis correct there in the metropolis centre?
