The Stockholm archipelago is certainly a curious place in Sweden, and with its abundance of water and land edges, there are a huge opportunities for architecture to thrive. Often offering a great relationship, a waters edge can bring about fantastic architecture in both aesthetics and function. With its own beach and jetty, the Cone House certainly looks great upon its sloping lakeside with its form all so to accentuate its topography.
