The project is situated by the coast of the north of Zealand, Denmark. The plot is a partitioning of a larger plot belonging to an old thatched house and is partly enclosed by trees. The two buildings, inhabited by two generations, share the garden, and in the layout of the site plan attention has been given to providing both separate and common spaces.
The main focus has been to add spatiality and experience of light. Diagonal views stretch out through the whole building. In working with the section ceiling height is minimized and “sky-boxes” are added to provide space and air. The large glazed openings give a view to the sky as a 5th façade. Large sliding door lets the in- and outside melt together. Façade is made of oak lists treated with iron sulfate.
