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.
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.
While the color scheme of the backdrop is largely white additions such as the black accent wall in the family room plush rugs colorful couches and décor breathe life into the setting. The focus here is on loads of natural light and a breezy ambiance that seems like an extension of the world outside.
The design of the home insulation used and smart choice of light fixtures makes the residence extremely energy-efficient and the addition of photovoltaic panels provides green energy while dramatically reducing the carbon footprint.
A more open floor plan replaced the traditional interior that was burdened with unnecessary partitions to create a cheerful and pleasant ambiance indoors. A revamp in the style of the new guest bathroom family bathroom master bedroom and children’s bedrooms completes the makeover that still retains much of the original flavor of the classic British structure despite the fresh ergonomic skin.
