The Nordic Barnhouse Project


I recently came across the Nordic Barnhouse Project (in Denmark) on Instagram via one of my favourite Swedish design bloggers, Frida Ramstadt of Trendenser. Frida mentioned the architect, Bruno Jakobsen recently won the Randers Municipality's Architecture Award 2021 for the project. The home is also the architect's residence. Loving the open spaces that face into a courtyard, and the windows that open up to the surrounding forest. 

“The main focus throughout the design is the actual looking out into the woods. No matter where you are, it’s always in view,” says Bruno Jakobsen, architect.

The earthy tones, black roofs and facades in tight vertical planks of Canadian cedar set the tone. The orangery placed between the two buildings pulls the spaces together creating a sheltered courtyard for all seasons. Such a dreamy home. 


Let's take a look!
