This project is for a singlefamily house at village of Varpelev in the southeast part of Zealand, Denmark.
The brief was to design a 150 m2 home for a family of four persons. The overall main idea, very early in the sketching phase, was to reinterpret the traditional Danish white painted three parted farmhouses from the 18th century which are very common in the surrounding landscape of Varpelev.
The landscape of Varpelev is shaped by the last iceage, and the house is placed at the highest point of this landscape overlooking a huge open field. The house consists of three parts: a long section which holds the entrance/ hallway, a pantry, kitchen, a small playroom and a study with huge panorama windows facing the pristine landcape. The mid sections consists only a large livingroom connected to the kitchen and to the third part of the house which contains another playroom, bathromm and master bedroom also with panorama windoms to the landscape.
The house is built of light weight concrete blocks (H+H blocks), plastered and painted white to ecco the traditional farmhouses. All windows are made of teak wood. The interior is all white with oak planks on the floor.
