Villa Rypen by C.F. Møller Architects

December 5, 2017

Villa Rypen: It is a single-storey detached house situated on the edge of a forest in Aarhus. Inspired by the unique site, the forest is invited in, and the house extends its terraces to reach out to the forest’s tall trees, and also to the garden.

The different seasons of the year are apparent from the house’s living rooms, as well as from the exquisite wooden terraces which give a sense of visually appealing living space.

Large window sections in a serrated design idiom ensure an inflow of light from several directions, and the view of the forest is exquisitely framed, to provide a unique backdrop to the living rooms in the house.

Villa Rypen has a flexible layout around an airy central living and kitchen space. The room has access to a south- and east-facing terrace towards the garden, and a north- and west-facing terrace towards the forest.

The house can be arranged according to a family’s changing requirements, and the rooms towards the forest can be closed off with sliding doors. Currently, the house can have several light living spaces and three east-facing bedrooms.

The terracotta tiles screen facades are set off by the forest’s changing nuances and the material’s burnished glow is in perfect harmony with nature.

The wooden terraces visually extend the living rooms and give a sense of ample living space. The window sections from floor to ceiling out to the terraces give a sense of the room continuing and merging with the outdoors.
