Situated on on the outskirts of north Copenhagen, the Villa Bie is an extraordinary residence like a slab growing out of the earth at an angle.
Danish-American design practice MLRP has reinvented a traditional Danish gabled house into an angular, minimalist and extremely impressive residence.
The facade of the building is clad in 650 sqm of Accoya wood, a minimalistic staircase is carved from the home’s concrete foundation, creating large openings of glass to ensure visual contact between land and sea.
Inspiration from architect:
The conceptual idea arose from the restrictions that was laid out by the very strict local planning authorities, which would only allow 1 1/2 floors and a gabled roof. We wanted a landscaped house and the client wanted something unique. This way the house reinterprets the Danish building tradition in a radical new way.
