Villa Wienberg in Aarhus
- Caroline Kurze
For Villa Wienberg in Aarhus, Wienberg Architects and Friis and Moltke created a special atmosphere that is both, cooling and calming. The walls are planked on the outside and the villa opens to its surroundings with windows that are perfectly proportioned for the double purpose of inviting nature in as well as creating a cozy and private space. Polished concrete floors feature through the house and while some rooms have been painted white, the main living spaces are lined with oil-treated oak boards.
The villa playfully breaks the strictly square shape of the plot in a careful orchestration of angles and split-levels. It seems to organically grow into the rich vegetation of pine, temple-tree and rhododendron leaves.
