Danish houses are beautiful beyond anything you could possibly expect them to be. They are not small, not tiny, nor do they lack the most amazing design features, which are rare nowadays in the modern world.
The design is characterized by the unusual combination of floors, which slants in different directions. Some of these slanted walls are glass, creating a great space between a room and an open terrace which is blessings for a bluer room or for those looking outwards.
It’s located in Lasvos, Greece, and was designed by SOUK Design.
It’s marvelous how the cobine roof ends up blending with the white walls behind it.
French Country House by Peter Jacobs:
“Rare to find a building in Taipei where the facade is designed the same way as the interior. In this case, it has been designed following the rules of the classic Taipei courtyard house.
We attempted to have the kitchen placed in the corner, and placed the bathroom on the slope.
Additionally, we tried to have the bedroom placed in the middle of the building, enjoying the view towards the green hillside of the park behind the house.
The slanted walls above the kitchen and bathroom were removed, creating a new irregular “footbridge”, leading from the kitchen to the bathroom, which is connected by a new stair to the master bedroom.
The existing shaft is restored, becoming a more rational and functional staircase that allows for a different experience towards the living room and bedrooms at ground level.
In order to reduce the cost of the building, we used prefabricated timber, reducing labor costs and energy consumption.”
