The situation forms an open wing plan which opens towards the south. The south wing contains the private zone with compact sleeping cabins. The east wing consists of one large open living/kitchen area, divided by a split-level, emphasizing the view put the straight towards Jomfruland. The form is dynamic with a wedge-shaped plan and a roof form that embraces the view to the bay in the front.

The pine facade is treated with iron-sulfate which together with the sedum-moss roof captures the coloring in the environment.
