A renovated family house in Aarhus, Denmark is a very special place, characterized by contrasts. Rarely do the supposed opposites meet as harmoniously as they do here. Dark and light, modern and old, warm and cold, light and shadow form a harmonious whole and invite you to live peacefully.
Renovated family home by Wienberg Architects and Friis & Moltke
The villa is located on a corner lot in Højbjerg, a residential area of Aarhus. Mette and Martin Wienberg in collaboration with the Danish architects Friis & Moltke transformed this holiday home in Denmark, which has existed since 1940, into a modern and comfortable home for their family. At Villa Wienberg, borders are crossed, for which it was awarded the City of Aarhus Architecture Prize in 2008.
Villa Wienberg – a house of contrasts
Villa Wienberg is much more than just a rrenovated single-family house. It is a house of contrasts. In contrast to the strict black facade, there is a cozy and warm atmosphere in the rooms. The interior walls are clad with oak, which makes them look almost alive. The seating furniture is complemented by soft furs and couch cushions. The warm toning of the wood is used in many ways and combined with polished concrete floors. Large sliding windows offer relaxed views of the surrounding garden with flower beds.
