CPH House sits on a uniquely beautiful site between lakes and forests. The house was designed to preserve the view to the landscape and lake, be hovering above for views, create framework for separate yet communal lives.
The house is conceived as three separate volumes each defining distinct worlds within them. By their superposition their define a fourth space, the void in-between that becomes the communal space for shared living. Defined by the absence of structure, the void becomes a continuation of the landscape into the house. By being carved into the landscape below and as a vertigo into the top box, the void becomes the hearth of the building, a three dimensional space that connects all parts of the house.
Each of the three volumes are specifically related to the landscape, the children’s rooms directly into the landscape, the master bed room elevated for morning views of the grassing deers, and the living hovering above, in between the tops of the old beech trees. It offers panoramic views of the lake and forest and with a grand roof terrace. The top box is cantilevering of from four columns, completely liberating the space below. Creating a house integrated in and with the landscape.
