Via Bedfords

A contemporary single-storey house designed by Danish architect Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen has hit the market in the UK’s Suffolk for £1.5m.

Owners James Scott, who has Danish heritage, and his wife Jane hired the architect (co-principal at Copenhagen’s Norm.Architects) to create the lateral property three years ago. Dubbed The Pavilion House, it features Siberian larch cladding and dark-grey window frames, which give it a distinctive Scandinavian flair.

The Suffolk property‘s long, flat roof and open interior spaces also have echoes of Mies Van Der Rohe’s one-room Modernist masterpiece, Farnsworth House in Illinois.

The Pavilion House – now on the market via Bedfords – is encircled by farmland, a few miles from Southwold. Bjerre-Poulsen designed it to make the most of its countryside vistas: full-length windows run the length of the front elevation, filling rooms with light and drawing the eye to the views outside.

You can see across the entire length of the house from the open passageway, exaggerating the feeling of space throughout the home.

The country property’s one-acre gardens, which feature a studio building, are unfenced and adjoin open fields that border the Reydon Marshes.
