Villa Platanvej

A renovation with references to the original architecture

Villa Platanvej is located in the middle of the beautiful Risskov in Aarhus, where the waves from Kattegat can be both seen and heard.

The villa is constructed on the foundation of a classic type house from the 1970’s, and is the result of a complete transformation.

Today, the house is designed with white-painted facades, where two wooden boxes made of teakwood cut into the house’s facade. The house is designed on a pedestal of raw concrete, which in front of the villa forms a small space and a spot for guest parking. At the back of the house a terrace with an integrated outdoor kitchen and an outdoor shower is created.

One of the two wooden boxes continues into the house forming the frame of the open kitchen area of the house. In the living room and lounge the house’s original fireplace is still in its original location.

In addition to the kitchen and living room, the villa comprises a children’s bedroom, two child’s rooms with private bathrooms, a shower- and relaxation area, a hall and a living room with a magnificent view of Kattegat on the first floor.
