Gotland, a holiday island off the south coast of Sweden, is a place I remember full of lush gardens, burnt red cottages with white trim, and blonde families cycling around. 
Clearly I never made it to the north part, where an abandoned military base and rock quarry stand. A Swedish architect firm has now converted one of these bunkers into a house, because somebody had to break the red-on-white look.
