Seaside Abode by Norm Architects


Combining Scandic-Bohemian feels and barefoot luxury, this beautiful coastal home in Denmark calls for slow days spent by the sea. Recently completed by Norm Architects, the renovated and modernised home is situated amongst the unspoilt nature of North Zealand, just an hour out of Copenhagen. A quiet and secluded location surrounded by stunning scenery where Japanese zen aesthetics and danish cottage style charm come together, it boasts subtle, Nordic luxury and eclectic design elements.

With architect Linda Korndal leading the project, and Laura Bilde working on the interior architecture, the goal was to bring nature into the space, blurring the lines between inside and out - an ambition many of us can relate to in today's increasingly digital and urbanised world. 

The serene interior features a rich and natural material palette of wood and stone. Earthy colours carry through the spaces, with a faint touch of blue and green tones in the handmade ceramics and soft linen. Furniture, sculptures, design elements and art pieces add a more refined and international sense to the house, while the surrounding nature flows through the panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows. This is further emphasised through references to colours, tactile surfaces and painted objects.

Dark and light nuances are bridged by subtle midtones in the furniture and bespoke elements, creating a balanced look and feel. The soft and minimal settings are harmoniously accompanied by picture-perfect ocean views. Custom interior elements provide timeless well-tailored solutions, while the understated decor reflects the surrounding landscapes. I particularly love the living room couches designed by Piero Lissoni and the custom-made sculptural lamp in the entrance way. Oak wooden plinths, bronzed brass lamps, Noren (Japanese fabric dividers), objects, ceramics and art pieces collected by their owners during their travels embody the same design language and earthy palette.
