Rental of the week: a house of cylinders in Denmark

This home on the Danish island of Møn is inspired by a children’s playhouse.

Called Birkedal, the three-bedroom house spreads across a grassy plot like a series of hopping stones. Living spaces are divided across nine connected cylindrical volumes, which create bubble-like rooms within the modern holiday villa.

Inside, wooden walls have been painted white and rooms furnished with mid-century style furniture and brass-detailed lighting and fixtures. It’s a nod to the classic Scandi aesthetic, updated with a seaside twist thanks to the beach pebble floor.

German architect Jan Henrik Jansen designed the modern holiday villa, which was completed earlier this year. Right now, the building’s pine-clad walls have a vibrant colour but, as it weathers, it’ll take on the tawny hues of the surrounding woodlands, giving it a treehouse feel.

An added bonus is its proximity to the beach – a sandy stretch of coastline, ideal for watersports, just 300 metres away.

Sleeping up to six, this modern architecture rental is available from early next month. Visit Holiday Architecture for more.
