Interior wood work/doors/kitchen design: Primus architects Production

The plot is 300 sqM and is situated in a traditional allotment society in Copenhagen. Once laid out for leisure and growing vegetables, the relatively cheap rent and proximity to the city centre is making these neighbourhoods attractive to young couples.
Due to the density of the area, windows are not allowed closer than 2,5 m the plot´s boundaries. We suggested a building layout of a cross with closed gables, that framed 4 seperate, small gardens. Each in close connection to the living space, but with different sun orientation. The glazed, introvert corners of the cross layout makes for visual connections from garden to garden.
The section is created like a skyline and is an interpretation of the local building regulations in order to create maximum ceiling height and natural light.
The facade cladding in solid oak lists treated with iron sulfate, which protects the wood and creates the weathered surface.
Interior walls are made from painted wooden boards. The kitchen is revamped IKEA, finished with custommade laquered plywood. The interior doors are festoon hanged in laquered plywood.
