To begin with, the residence was designed by as a holiday home. The area was quite populated with ‘traditional’ Danish homes. To integrate the Village House seamlessly into the landscape, visible traditional elements were kept.
Defined by functionality, the new addition was designed with sustainability in mind (using many principles of passive solar design). The exterior, entirely wrapped in timber, looks very natural and coquette.
The new openings with iron frame and fixed glass contrast with the existing ones, which were treated with a chestnut wood. The entrance garden has been enhanced with reclaimed flagstones, wood benches, ivy and lavender, for a simple but hearty welcome.
Even though this house was recently built, the designers did their best in respecting the architecture and tradition of the surrounding constructions. Exposed stone formations, white picket fences and exposed timber are of strong visual effect. You are looking at a fresh, simple and beautiful home with charming interior details, perfectly integrated in its environment. Would you “trade” a modern home with contemporary details on a traditional crib such as the one below?
Nancy Kennedy takes inspiration for her handwoven rugs from a number of sources. Her designs incorporate styles inspired by the American West and Southwest; some, like the QR Code design, have a decidedly modern tone.
