The open fireplace has an asymmetrical angle that confuses the eye. “Eskil Sundahl had placed a divan to the left of the fireplace and had the chimney [surround] built at a slight angle so he could lie down and still have an uninterrupted view over the garden,” Öquist says. “That, to me, is quality of life.”This focus on finding well-being through small things is something Öquist thinks Swedes can share with the world. “For me, it’s important to have room to breathe, psychologically and physically. Other parts of the Swedish lifestyle that are worth emulating are the right to roam freely in nature and a feeling of togetherness and empathy for those around you.”Sweden’s Allemansrätt (right of public access) protects citizens’ ability to enjoy nearly all the undeveloped countryside, even if it is privately owned, including using it for hiking, cycling and camping.

Eine Besonderheit des offenen Kamins ist der asymmetrische Sims, der auf den ersten Blick etwas verwirrend wirken mag. „Eskil Sundahl hat links neben dem Kamin einen Diwan platziert und den Abzug in einer leichten Schräge gebaut, damit man ungestört den Blick in den Garten genießen kann, während man auf dem Diwan liegt“, so Öquist. „Für mich ist das ein Stück Lebensqualität.“
