In the small town of Jels in southern Jutland lies this unconventional two-storey
brick-built house with a floor space of 260 m2. Originally, the space was divided into
many small rooms, but the house has been renovated and expanded to form a grand
home with room for the entire family. For the family who lives here, the house is a dream
come true, which they enjoy every day.
Long, light Douglas planks tie the living room, the kitchen and the dining room together
into a coherent whole. The ceiling on the ground floor is open to the ridge with large
skylights that pull the daylight into the heart of the building. The lady of the house works
as a stylist, and the open-space rooms are decorated with Danish design classics and
works of art by her own hand. The wide full length planks strike a calm and beautiful
contrast to the colourful and personal interior design.
Underfloor heating installed under the solid planks keeps the house warm and allows the
three children in the family to play barefoot all year long.
