This conversion of an old farmhouse in Skane, Swedencompleted in 2008 was the first project by Swedish-German architect Jonas Labbeand Dutch architect Johannes Schotanus in the firm they formed in 2007 calledLASC studio. They were looking to preserve the nostalgic character of the
region yet redesign for contemporary needs of light, space and nature.
InSkane, most farmhouses leave a little to be desired when it comes to windows,hence dark interiors. LASC opened this renovation to the outside by adding
large windows and by removing over half of the interior walls and ceilings. Toremain true to the materials typically used in the region they chose concrete,pine and white plaster with the addition of vibrant colors to liven the inside.Concrete counters in the kitchen, a two-sided woodstove in the heart of thehouse, and a tub-with-a-view in the bathhouse make this small house big.
