Cedar and weathering steel shape both the exterior and the interior of the home and offer a wonderful textural alchemy while complementing the air of modernity indoors. Spread across two different levels the house offers a relaxed setting where the landscape becomes a part of the narrative in an organic fashion.
In addition there are works by Kaare Klint Mogens Koch Mogens Lassen Fritz Henningsen and Ole Wancher among others. Adding to the home’s charm and appeal Knud Erik has also mixed in antiques alongside treasured mementoes that he collected during several years spent in South Africa and Asia.
Large glass doors with metal frames connect the living area kitchen and dining space with the lavish deck outside while providing unabated views of the distant landscape. The interior combines modern décor with a serene beach style offering the best of both worlds.
A new kitchen living area and dining space on the lower level are connected with the pool area using large sliding glass doors bringing in a flood of natural light. The color scheme is kept largely neutral to let the vast and tasteful art collection of the homeowner shine through in various rooms of the house.
In order to reach the entrance residents and visitors cross a bridge that traverses a moat surrounding the residence. Reconstructed on various occasions the present building’s oldest section dates from the baroque architectural period in 1670.
