There is nothing like a relaxing beach house to escape the rush of mundane city life and enjoy a rejuvenating weekend with friends and family. Overlooking an idyllic stretch of beach and the vast Pacific in the distance is all about a tranquil lifestyle wrapped in modern comfort.
Designed by Archinauten the steel folding elements were placed to regulate temperature and the amount of sunlight that seeps indoors even as they provide ample privacy to an otherwise distantly ‘open’ home design.
The clean white stucco facade and red-tiled saddle roof of this impressive house affords the structure with an enchanting fairytale-like expression. Enjoying an idyllic countryside setting the house appears wondrous charming and welcoming. It can be found on Funen island (Denmark’s third largest island) and is the property of Knud Erik Hansen the third-generation owner and CEO of Carl Hansen & Søn.
Bringing together the past and the present in a wonderful alchemy of styles and eras seems to be the favored path in the case of most home renovations in recent times. The idea of adaptive reuse of an existing structure instead of completely dismantling it and starting afresh has caught on both because of its economic and aesthetic sense. Located in the suburb of just a few miles from the heart of this fabulous home epitomizes the approach of blending the modern with the classic.
The overhaul saw the opening up of the interiors to usher in a flood of natural light while removing the indoor partitions to create a more open and cozy living area. The low-pitched roof and exposed rafters of the original home accentuate the midcentury style of the latest renovation as plush décor in neutral hues fills up the living room and the bedroom.
