Situated by the North Sea, near fjords, lakes and dunes in a fishing village in the Thy National Park, this holiday home recently designed by Søren Sarup of Puras Architects, interacts with its natural environment and integrates qualities of simple living. In keeping with Nordic design traditions are its closeness to nature, its use of light, and its airy openness. The warm wood surfaces against clean white and sharp edges, combined with modern Danish furniture classics, create a calm and relaxed atmosphere that breaks the boundary between indoor and outdoor life.
The wooden deck is designed with several corners and spaces that offer shade, shelter or a place in the sun – be it spring, summer or fall. The Light House is composed of two very different structures: a horizontal pent roof house, with broad windows and Douglas fir paneling, and a vertical slate-roofed A-shaped house. In the pent roof house, with its open, transparent design, you will find an open living, dining and cooking area, a bedroom and a bathroom. Here you will always feel close to nature – even from the bathtub, you can enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding dune landscape.
The pointed roof house features two more bedrooms, a bathroom and a gallery under the gable. This room, with sleeping space for 2 children, offers panoramic views over the Flade Lake, across the dunes, and out to the Lodberg Lighthouse.
The interior features a pared-back Scandinavian design with a muted color palette and a contemporary wood burning fireplace. This house will cover almost every need, whether it is a couple in love wanting a quiet get away from it all, or a family getting together for a vacation. The property is available for rent via Holiday Architecture and Aavego (price on application).
