Project: Private Family Home, Denmark
In a small brick villa built back in 1917, Designer and Partner at Norm Architects, Frederik Werner, has created a beautiful home for his family with great attention to detail, light, and materiality – and with the utmost respect for the historic elements within its structure. With his love for Japanese aesthetics and honest materials, oak wood is a recurring element only attaining more beauty with time, while creating a calm atmosphere for the family to relax in. Following the philosophy at Norm, the house shouldn’t just be experienced visually, but with all the senses – from sound to touch.
Merging Scandinavian design tradition and Japanese aesthetics, the home is a cosy refuge to retreat to in a busy everyday life. With great attention to the selected material’s inherent qualities, the space has a certain depth and a stimulating presence. All walls and ceilings are painted in the same color from ST. Leo, however, depending on the location of the rooms and the time of day, the color is ever-changing and so is the expression of the space.
