R21 Arkitekter as Architects

The aim of the project is to rehabilitate an existing villa, and integrate two new, small single family houses on the site. The two new houses reflect the character of the villa by their modern gabled roof. With a similar expression the two adjust to the situation with a focus on view and light. All the houses obtain a private garden within a bigger shared outer room. The main floor has an open character where kitchen, living and dining area are all in one big room. Some large steps down to the garden gives the room a close connection to the outside, and also an alternative place to stay. The open character allows a continuous window strip of various heights, giving the big room several different atmospheres. Throughout the houses the exposed wooden structure in the ceiling becomes an important part of the architectural language. Visible also from the outside, the wooden structure is cladded with vertical Baubuche laminated beech wood.
