The twelve Marina Villas on the island of Strömsö are a showcase of an elegant play with tradition, nature and modern lifestyle.

The large terraces build a stage for the traditional interaction between the main house and a separate Finnish sauna building. There is a superb sea view from each villa. The surrounding nature and the sea blend seamlessly in with the graphite grey wood walls and ridge stone roofs, and the lighter, white interior woodworks bring in the contrast that is always present in the archipelago.
