The house is from the end of the 50’s, rooted in a Scandinavian modernist building tradition. A brick wall on the outside of the L-shaped building encloses a atrium with dark wooden paneling and generous wood frame glazing on the inside. The clients wanted to add another 60 sqm to the building.
We decided to follow the existing color palette, but to benefit from the achievements being done in material and production technologies during the past 50 years. The outer protective brick wall continues on the exterior of the extension. To make a clear distinction between the old and the new brick wall, the bricklayers built the wall with the same masonry bond but with a relief. This gives the often too perfect new bricks a “dirtiness” due to the shadows.
The new facade towards the courtyard consists of a multi layered wall consisting of a textile curtain followed by a 23 sqm large sliding glass partition, a wrought iron railing and a system of CNC-drilled folding doors in compact laminated panels on the outside.
