Jan Henrik Jansen is a Danish/German architect based in Copenhagen, Denmark. He holds degrees from Leibniz Universität, Hannover and Aarhus School of Architecture and has taught at the University of applied science in Lübeck, Germany and DIS in Copenhagen. Between 2002 and 2016 Jansen designed and single-handedly built three idiosyncratic, award winning summerhouses; `Langelinie ́, `Black+bright ́ and `Birkedal ́, on the Danish island of Møn. These three houses served as a laboratory where Jansen experimented with design, details and materials and led to the launch of his practice, Jan Henrik Jansen arkitekter, in 2012. Jansen now works internationally, designing quietly radical, materially-rich and geometrically precise houses that are highly sensitive to the diverse landscapes that they occupy.
