This minimalist Scandinavian house in Copenhagen was designed to allow inhabitants to be one with nature. Belarus design firm KAVA Architects conceived it as two large volumes connected with a glazed gallery that houses a beautiful winter garden. This garden space acts as an extension of the surrounding forest and can be enjoyed all year 'round, even in the chilly Danish winters.
The house references traditional Scandinavian craftsmanship and the region’s authentic principles of working with relief and texture. Providing a serene environment far from city bustle, the house facilitates a connection between the residents and the surrounding landscape.
The house comprises two volumes-the left one accommodates the main living room which offers views of the forest, and a combined kitchen and dining space on the first floor. The second floor houses the bedrooms and cabinet. Relaxation zones – sauna, swimming pool and play areas- and utility rooms, bathrooms and a garage are housed in the other volume. A glazed gallery connects the two volumes and functions as a winter garden that acts as a continuation of the landscape.
