Villa Wood in Copenhagen, Denmark, is a modern wooden house that is a perfect example of how to live and build sustainably. Designed by Nord Architects in 2019, this ‘living laboratory’ of modern and sustainable building types aims to have a low climate footprint, but maximum impact on life quality and a healthy indoor climate.
With CLT elements in mass-timber, Villa Wood can be customized to meet the needs of different families with varying living patterns and preferences. This house is also designed for disassembly, so all parts are potentially destined for reuse.
Step into the Vipp Chimney House – a boutique hotel marvel that beautifully marries modern functionality with the charm of historical architecture. Found nestled in Copenhagen, Denmark, this unique property was masterfully revived by Studio David Thulstrup in 2019.
The structure features a 35-metre high chimney (approximately 115 feet), lending an exceptional quality to the city’s skyline. On entering, one is greeted by a striking U-shaped staircase, leading to a myriad of design wonders – from steel-framed glass doors to 4.5-metre high (nearly 15 feet) glass panels in bedrooms.
The genius of Thulstrup’s contemporary design is in the careful separation between old and new, creating a living space that is as edgy as it is comfortable.
