C.F. Møller Architects describes Atelier and Guest House:
The architects own house is built in 1969 and since enlarged with additions in 1978, 1992, 2001 and 2009. The most recent addition is an atelier built into the dune slope in an interplay with a guest house lying higher up on the site.
The new atelier wing extension to a private home has been carefully set in a coastal slope, and balanced with an adjacent new guest-wing. The new building and terrace become part of a sequence of steps and terraces, meandering down the slope. The atelier and guest-wing are clad with untreated larch slats, and the roofs, overlooked from the upper terraces, are planted with succulents, mosses and herbs.
The 3,5 m tall space has been designed with attention to views and daylight. The interior is clad in birch veneer panels, with colored insets, and every wall becomes a composition of light and graphics in itself.
