New Single Family Houses: Made By Nordic Architects
The book presents and comments on a selection of new Nordic single-family houses including custom-built homes, pre-fab houses and examples of existing homes that have been renovated and expanded.
The main emphasis is on Danish examples, but Nordic architecture is charaterised by many common features, including the desire to adapt houses to match the landscape and surroundings, which makes comparison inspiring and relevant. Our approach to constructing single-family houses springs from a long-standing tradition and a unique culture. The book presents several historical examples of this, including recently renovated and listed bungalows from the 1950s and 1960s as well as detached houses from the same period designed by leading architects of the time. More recent examples include houses designed by Tham & Videgård, Cornelius & Wöge, Mads Møller, Martina Eriksson, Valbæk Brørup, Merete Lind Mikkelsen and others.
