At Österlen on the Swedish coast, designer Ulf Nordfjell fuses a strong sense of ecology with a Swedish sense of design.
This private garden is located on the southeastern coast of Sweden on the Baltic Sea. It enjoys the very best of Sweden’s climate, although it can be windy due to its coastal location. And while many gardens take their cue from the wider landscape, Österlen is more than this. The garden is positioned between a closed, dark forest and the wide open sea, and designed ‘in the tracks of nature’.
