Text description provided by the architects. Villa U is a two-storey single family home near Aarhus located in beautiful surroundings with scenic views. The house, which takes full advantage of the view and its proximity to nature on three sides, is organised around a tall double-height central space with skylights, accompanied by a sculptural staircase and brick fireplace offering ample space to exhibit works of art.

The ground floor and upper floor are designed as mirrored parallelograms, creating a vast array of open and covered terraces and niches on both levels, framed by a facade of dark patinated zinc with a warm-toned inner lining of hardwood mouldings.

Large tile floors, pigmented oak floors, handmade kitchen units and custom-fired brick provide a contrasting balance with the house’s light tones, forming textural surfaces that accentuate the ever-changing light. The home’s proximity to green surroundings is enhanced by the generous, floor-to-ceiling glass walls and flowing transitions between indoors and out.
