Garage-Turned-Summer House in Sweden
Lotta and Henry Imberg, the husband/wife team behind Imberg Arkitekter, turned a garage for tanks and military vehicles into a summer home overlooking the sea on Furillen, an island off the northeast coast of Gotland. With open sea breezes, ceiling fans need not apply.
