From the architect. We chose to preserve the old building with its fine plastered walls and contrasting by adding a single element,-an element which is covered with the same material - black anodized aluminium plates - on facades and roof.

By using reflective surfaces inside the studio we have worked with the reflection of images and light in an attempt to "bring the view down into the studio". So a kind optical space - a house which works as a street mirror.

The new element is one homogeneous element in contrast to the white plastered facades of the old house.

The project is both contextual and innovative. In its shape and colour it blends in with the existing farmhouses. At the same time the studio offers new spatial feeling and qualities due to its small innovative solutions.

Surley that metre box on the side could have been moved.

i am not an architect, but did they really have to tear out the insides of this cute, old house?

Question: The section (and elevation) shows a gable ridge cover, whereas the photographs of the finished building appear to show the roof panels sliding all the way to the ridgeline. Do they then in fact fold, and turn down to the next joint on the other side? Looks pretty sleek...
