On a high slope facing the Kattegat, on the north Zealand coast, Bo Ramlying of RH ARKITEKTER has designed a modern interpretation of the traditional Danish summer house.
The house lies across the site with a dark, streamlined look, virtually concealing the sea view to visitors arriving there. The overall aim was to create a home that links elements of comfort, nearness and the spectacular landscape.
The house is divided into two zones, one containing bedrooms, bathroom and entrance along the garden, and in contrast, a huge living space the full width of the house facing the sea. Sliding doors make it possible to remove the barrier between inside and out. The kitchen is located in the centre of the lounge as the hub of the house.
In contrast to the light, elegant interior, the facade is black-painted brick. The combination of the solidity of the house and its minimalist look help reinforce the basic concept.
