This is named Fredensborg Residence exactly where is built on 5 modest plateaus linked by methods, this house developing reflects the shape of its surrounding terrain. The property aesthetic is derived from inspirations brought about by the labyrinthine mountain village architecture, that it is why you may find very easily familiar in Southern Europe, the architecture of Chinese temples, and in the works of modernist Danish architecture Jorn Utzon.
The roofs color palette consists of four distinct yellow and brownish tones in a mix, to attain a natural imperfection. It gives you a harmonious and charming miniature scene like that of a conventional Southern European mountain village, when the roofs are viewed from the highest point of the house.
A wide central staircase characterizes the architectural interior of the house, highlighted by the ceilings varying heights and the vast glass facades seeking through the ethereal garden. The vertical narrow windows faced east and west to optimize viewing points, as well as to serve as a canvas for organic light to successfully illuminate space inside the residence.
The home does not reveal its big size at first glance. Not till you walk along the east side of the property by means of a little path leading uphill towards the major entrance, will numerous new volumes be introduced. You will also locate a breathtaking visual of an 18-meter stretch from the east to west axis of the house, through one particular of the vertical windows seeking into the kitchen spot.

The different areas of the home are divided by volumes of brick that contains the kitchen and fireplace which also serves as room dividers. The spacious staircase is significantly inspired by the major pedestrian street in tiny villages and serves as a all-natural gathering place in the residence and attracts activity in its space.
The lowest plateau of the residence contains the dining location and a tiny washroom. It is divided from the kitchen location by a noticeably grey brick wall with broad actions on each and every side, dividing the room into 3 sections.

Towards west is a high slender window emphasizing height of the ceiling. This window gives a clear view to the terrace situated in the center of the home peeking all the way by way of the living area which is identified on the other side of the terrace.
The Residence is structured about two axes the central staircase going from north to south following the form of the sloping terrain, and the axes on the middle plateau from the kitchen to the east to the living space towards the west.
The kitchen is thought of as the most critical component of this building– but is still partly hidden in two niches permitting the occupants of the residence to be capable to operate on preparing food without having the clutter becoming exposed to their guests. This structure has also left room to build in an oven, ventilation, fridge and storage as an integrated element of the architecture. The centered kitchen is designed to make the perform flow a lot simpler when preparing food and serving guests.
On the west finish of the home, the children’s section of the residence corresponds strategically to the kitchen building located at the southeast.

The sense of transparency and the connection among interior and exterior is enhanced by the truth that the level of the terrace floor is the identical as the floor of the interior. Between the living area and the children’s sections is however another modest niche cut into the terrain containing a little office space.

Materials AND Organic LIGHT
One of the principal ambitions for this home is to offer a feeling of serenity and calm. To accomplish this aim, the use of various contrasting materials was minimized. And to suit the components of the buildings surroundings and staying correct to its natural type, a lot of regional materials were utilised. The exterior consists of yellow tiles, yellow brick and black painted wood. The interior is created up of raw grey walls, brushed natural oak floors and white ceilings. The consistent use of identical components throughout the property is what offers this labyrinthine structure a cohesive look and feel as becoming a single large continuous space. It is the option of nearby supplies that offers the same harmony as you discover in old villages exactly where every thing is constructed from what was accessible about the village. The use of organic supplies, that had some imperfection gave the residence an authentic aesthetic – like that of an aged and nicely treasured structure, which only becomes much more beautiful as it decays. It that sense we were really considerably inspired by the Japanese thoughts on wabi-sabi when selecting components.
An additional critical part of this style is on how making it such an integral part of shaping the architecture. So as an alternative of just making use of typical formats for windows we played a lot with various formats to acquire certain effects when the light enters the home – giving every area its personal character and certain feel.
