The Stockholm loft and studio of artist Carouschka Streijffert is white and smooth and precise as a porcelain tub, but her cabin, which is on a island just a short voyage away, is a step toward the raw, with unfinished surfaces and wood grain ready to the touch. It’s far from rough, but compared to her daily digs there’s a casual, relaxed sensibility, as if the focus of workaday can soften into a deep, relaxed breath.

Weekend Cabin isn’t necessarily about the weekend, or cabins. It’s about the longing for a sense of place, for shelter set in a landscape…for something that speaks to refuge and distance from the everyday. Nostalgic and wistful, it’s about how people create structure in ways to consider the earth and sky and their place in them. It’s not concerned with ownership or real estate, but what people build to fulfill their dreams of escape. The very time-shortened notion of “weekend” reminds that it’s a temporary respite.

    Note to self: a hammock in the cabin is a brilliant idea.
