Have you seen this house by Norm Architects? It was completed in 2009 after an artist hired Norm to create the perfect space that would both function as a home and studio space. The client found inspiration from nature so the perfect spot to design their new home turned out to be; behind the famous Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebækand, Denmark, where an old house was available. The house had potential to be something extraordinary, as the structure appealed to the concept and the area was surrounded by greenery, water and had a rural feel to it, just what the client wanted.
What I love about this project is the modernized barn feel which is achieved by opening the space up, letting more light flow through as well as leaving raw materials to shine. The wood beams are of course another typical barn element which adds to this feel. These raw elements and organic wood finishes balances the more streamlined contemporary fittings and walls, all which brings the feel of a more up to date dwelling.

Indeed does this home both feel artistic and extraordinary. I am curios to hear, what you think of Norm’s project?
