It is this outdoor area that is used as an extended living space as it blurs the line between the interior and the world outside. A long and private entry surrounded by trees and plants leads to the lower-level living area that houses an open plan living room along with other public spaces.
As is the case with most modern renovations it is large sliding glass doors that get the job done with the new rear of the residence getting a large window with a distinct black frame. Despite this beautiful makeover not everything here is brand new with the exterior brick façade and striking features like the fireplace in the living room being preserved carefully.
Lighting is barely ever an issue during the day with a flood of natural sunlight making its way even into the lower floor while cozy ambient lighting supplemented by beautiful pendant lighting takes over at night. With a wonderful wooden deck large pool and other small niches life at House JJ is more about the outdoors than the comforts of the interior.
To ensure that privacy is not an issue it is the lower level that contains the bedrooms and other living quarters and even here one sees the presence of cleverly placed floor-to-ceiling glass windows to offer a glimpse of the world outside.
A contemporary home with a striking façade and panoramic landscape all around; is a visual treat for those who adore urban comfort wrapped in natural goodness. Designed by C.F. Møller this is a two-story single-family residence in Denmark that presents a unique and dramatic exterior draped in dark patinated Zinc a hint of hardwood and of course plenty of glass!
Move to the front and the distinct and dark external piers give the street façade a unique identity that lets it stand out from its neighboring structures. With living space that is separated from the large kitchen and dining area by a double-sided fireplace the interior uses as few partitions as possible.
On the lower level there is a beautiful living area that seems to flow outdoors into the barbecue zone along with the dining space kitchen family room and laundry. It is the second level that houses the four relaxing bedrooms bathrooms and a study / home office.
