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.
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 exterior of the house is a wonderful blend of woodsy elegance and contemporary style as clean straight lines large glass windows and pops of gray paint a distinct and dashing visual.
The street façade of the large private residence still retains its original look and it is only on the inside that one uncovers a more contemporary backdrop. The lovely use of windows skylights and of course recessed and pendant lighting add to the glitter and warmth of the family house that seems like a relaxing holiday retreat.
The double-height dining room becomes the focal point of the new social zone in this home as it stretches out into the outdoor deck consisting of a cozy lounge and barbecue spot.
