On a unique site, facing the sea, north of Copenhagen, we are designing an extraordinary residence. The house is a landscapeley paraphrase over a traditional Danish house with the gabled roof. The house is a slab growing out of the earth at an angle. The conceptual idea arose from the restrictions that was laid out by the very strict local planning authorities, which would only allow 1 1/2 floors and a gabled roof. We wanted a landscaped house and the client wanted something unique. This way the house reinterprets the Danish building tradition in a radical new way. The house opens up towards the water and towards the road it will be seen as a warm, organic element, with its large openings of glass, it will be ensure a visual contact between land and sea.
