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.
Modernizing this outdated residence started with an addition of a new bedroom along with a renovation of the kitchen and the bathrooms. The revamped interior showcases an array of beautiful textures brought in by a curated use of brick wood glass and stone.
Even though the color palette veers away from using any bright hues and largely employs white pleasant wooden elements in the dining room kitchen and at the entrance provide all the textural and visual contrast necessary. This also creates a bridge between the existing home and the modern extension aesthetically and allows for a blend of contrasting eras.
Hellerup Manor House is home to numerous pieces designed by Wegner’s expert hand including prototypes and samples that he developed jointly with Holger Hansen Knud Erik Hansen’s father.
Despite its charismatic use of matte orange and varying shades of blue the living area feels exquisite and visually balanced. Contemporary décor such as the plush couch in gray sculptural coffee tables and colorful accessories give the 900-square-meter residence a fabulous family zone.
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.
Beautifully appointed with sumptuous fixtures and quaint detailing Hellerup Manor House meshes both a traditional and midcentury modern aesthetic; it is on the one hand cozy and homely on the other light and airy. Furnishings and fittings set against varied backdrops placed in nooks and crannies or under eaves imbue the home with emotion personality and presence.
