Seaside Abode

Norm Architects as Architects

Norm Architects have completed an interior renovation in the danish countryside. Located in the unspoilt nature of North Zealand, just an hour out of Copenhagen, the stunning scenery surrounding the house calls for slow days spent by the sea.

Dark and light nuances are bridged by subtle midtones in the furniture and bespoke elements, creating a balanced look and feel. The soft and minimal settings are harmoniously accompanied by picture-perfect ocean views.

Materials in the house are natural with colours kept in soil-, stone- and wood-nuances, with a faint touch of blue and green tones in the handmade ceramics and soft linen. Various furniture, sculptures, design elements and art pieces add a more refined and international sense to the house, and the surrounding nature flows through the panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows and is further emphasised through references in colours, tactile surfaces and patinated objects.

The sculptural lamp in the entrée is custom-made for the house, made in bronzed brass like the bedroom and guestroom lamps from Apparatus and Workstead. Sculptural objects are from Artelleriet, and the living room couches are from Living Divani (designed by Piero Lissoni). A lot of the ceramics and art pieces are hand-picked and collected by the owners on their travels around the world.

Portraying the simple beauty of things related to nature, the sensuous, natural elements plays a key role in the interior of the house and the blurred lines between inside and outside. The ambition to bring nature into the space comes from a wish to reclaim a connection with nature—an ambition shared by many people in todays increasingly digital and urbanised world.
