Fredensborg House by Norm Architects

September 29th, 2010

The Fredensborg House designed by Danish Architect firm Norm Architects it is an exploration of high contrast, natural materials, and strategic light placement.

The High contrast is easily seen through the use of light materials and white walls contrasted with black furniture and accessories, but more immediately the contrast between the facade of the house and the beautiful minimalist interior.

In this photo we can see a three piece Henning Koppel weather station mounted on the wall above the rain boots.

A simple white kitchen with white stained floors. On the counter is one of our favorite modernist objects: The Kubus candleholder, by Danish designer Mogens Lassen.

The architects explains:

“One of the main goals for this house is to provide a feeling of serenity and calm. To achieve this goal, the use of different contrasting materials was minimized. And to suit the elements of the buildings surroundings and staying true to its natural form, a lot of local materials were used.”

As I mentioned earlier there are three main explorations of the house, the third is strategic lighting.
