INTO THE WOODS

AN ARCHITECT’S HOME FULL OF NORDIC FLAVOUR

Situated in a forest plot in Denmark, this home, designed by the architect who lives there, is informed by its location in all respects. 

“The main focus throughout the design is the actual looking out into the woods. No matter where you are, it’s always in view,” says Bruno Jakobsen, architect. 

The home itself consists of the residential spaces, a workshop, orangery and the design studio where Bruno works. Clad in a facade of Canadian cedar and with a roof in stealthy black steel, the materials are otherwise mostly Nordic – calm and serene with a focus on warm colours and textures. The home’s volumes are elongated and slender, linked together by the materials and details selected.

Furniture, the kitchen, bath and other elements throughout the spaces are also designed by the architect himself using Douglas woods. In such a well composed build like this, no detail is overlooked, with Buster + Punch used throughout.

“We’ve used Buster + Punch extensively in the project. I love the quality, but not least the design itself. Both Brass and Black fit perfectly into the interior design,” he concludes. 

If proof were ever needed that details are the cornerstone to realising an absolutely stellar interior, it’s right here, deep in the Danish forests.
