A remote peninsula on the Swedish island of Gotland has become an unlikely tourist destination. Bungenäs – a barren but beautiful strip of land on its north-eastern tip – had been off limits to the public for over 50 years. Now scores of visitors journey to the area, tipped off by social media and word of mouth. These pilgrims are drawn by the new restaurants, cultural venues, and startling contemporary architecture that pepper the peninsula’s Game of Thrones-like scenery.
For digital publication The Spaces, I spoke with architect Lisa Ekström of Skälsö Arkitekter about her work on the contemporary homes and converted bunkers that pepper the unique landscape.
