PRIVATE residence, frederiksstaden

TYPE: refurbishment

size:350 m²


YEAR: 2015


In 2015, Kjær Architecture designed the refurbishment of a private residence in a historically-listed building at the heart of central Copenhagen. Inspired by the ethereal paintings of Danish artist Vilhelm Hammershøi, Kjær Architecture created a design that explores the contrast and balance between light and shadow; reflection and opacity; classicism and modernity. Using existing, classical details as a reference point, Kjær Architecture developed a material palette of polished marble, matte walls and reflective metals to add a thoroughly modern feel to the residence. As a result, the design subtly unfolds to create spaces of modern elegance and quiet sophistication.
