When temperatures drop to sub-zero in the Swedish winter, most residents leave their summer homes behind for warmer properties. But Marie Granmar and Charles Sacilotto came up with a creative way to make their house inhabitable all year round. They decided to build a greenhouse around their home – and it changed everything.
Granmar is a civil engineer who also works as a science journalist. During the past two and a half decades of her career, she has written for newspapers as well as working in television and radio. What’s more, Granmar penned a book called Operation Child, which came out in 2013.
Granmar is in a relationship with Sacilotto, and they share a young son. Sacilotto, who hails from France, works as a teacher at Naka Gymnasium school in Stockholm but also trained as an engineer. And that sparked his interest in creating the unique home that the couple inhabit in Sweden.
