...in a stunning historic home.
One of the worlds most enviable collections of mid-century furniture - a living museum in the residence of Knud Erik Hansen, managing director of Carl Hansen & Søn and grandson of the company's iconic founder. Hansen has transformed this impressive Danish estate into a comfortable family home, filling it with stunning furniture and preserving the old property’s charm.
Most architecture books and magazines show houses that are overly polished to perfection and manicured to the extent that it is hard to imagine anybody actually lives there - especially families with children. We think they seem to miss the point that homes are meant to be inhabited, not just published. Why does this happen?
This home appeals to our sensibilities and belief that a home represents an ongoing story of a family and as such should respond to and accommodate that life and all that it entails. It also appeals because of our experiences of having worked on many beautiful old and protected structure houses that require careful conservation along with the skills to sensitively remodel, renovate and extend, to create comfortable and accomodating homes for modern family life.
