Designed by Neumann Mendro Andrulaitis Architects the beautiful home has a refreshing gray exterior that complements the natural redwood deck outdoors perfectly. The deck and front porch become an integral part of the narrative of the house and extend the living space outdoors in a seamless fashion.
The historical abode is fittingly replete with many of the furnishings produced by Carl Hansen & Søn and has the appearance of a quintessential lived-in Carl Hansen showplace. Indeed the large attic was renovated in 2014 and now acts as a showroom and additional living space. The attic’s angled roof helps confer a sense of intimacy and the wide oak planks from Danish company Dinesen add warmth depth and character.
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.
Glass walls windows and a new extension that contains the rejuvenating bathroom are crafted to bring in ample ventilation and connect the living zone and family area with the lush green landscape outdoors. The courtyard plays a pivotal role in shaping the overall ambiance of the villa as the outdoor dining room/hangout seems like a natural extension of the classy kitchen with pass-through windows.
Stacked wood that sits next to the fireplace adds texture to the interior while artwork such as the yellow Pixel Deer by Jihoon Choi gives the living area a fun casual vibe. The dining area next to the living space features a custom square dining table crafted using reclaimed wood and the kitchen also epitomizes this ‘salvaged’ approach with unique metal bar stools.
