Simple but striking Scandinavian modernism is showcased at this landmarked Danish home by architect Jørgen Bo and Vilhelm Wohlert in Rungsted, on the wild Øresund coast north of Copenhagen.
The 145 sq m Danish property was built in 1961 and is listed for 12.5m DKK via Adam Schnack. It is part of a seven-family development of houses set in a park in the suburban enclave, next to Rungsted Harbour, and is bordered by a forest and golf course.
Despite its proximity to the harbour, the house feels isolated thanks to its high walls, plantings and careful mathematics applied to its angled window panes and surfaces, which maintain views out while hiding inhabitants from prying eyes.
Midcentury 1960s interiors channel quintessential Danish minimalism with white-painted brick and swathes of warm timber across the five-bedroom Rungsted property. The Danes are known for pioneering indoor/outdoor living, and this villa embraces this concept via sliding glass doors that open onto an outdoor terrace, shaded by the overhanging roof.
