my scandinavian home: An artist's home in black, white and concrete

An artist's home in black, white and concrete

Friday, 28 February 2014

It's Friday - yay! To top of the week I'd love to share this home with you designed by Copenhagen based firm Norm Architects. The house is situated directly behind Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebaek (a must-see in Copenhagen!). The architectural work was commissioned by a local artist who was looking to turn the space into a modern home with more light so it could function both as a home and studio. The brick work and beams are original but Norm laid a new concrete floor.The monochrome palette and use of texture reminds me a lot of the Danish home from earlier in the week (do you prefer this floor or the glossier version?).

So now the beautiful bones are in place it's time to add the personal stamp. I'm sure it'll look truly wonderful!

I have to say, I do love Norm Architect's distinct style (see other of their homes featured here and here. They're also the architects behind Copenhagen restaurant Höst, one of my favourite places to eat out). How about you?

Since it's the weekend here's a house with a big dose of colour in the form of a relaxed family home in Ystad which never fails to put a smile on my face or if you're in the mood for something more countrystyle / rustic how about this pretty västergötland farmhouse?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and see you Monday!


  1. El trabajo de este equipo de arquitectos es sublime. Todas sus obras son fantásticas.

  2. Hello, it is fantastic house, I love the bricks, the beams and the big window, lovelyyyyy:)
    Have a nice weekend!

  3. I like this home, but I wouldn't want to live there. All I can think of concrete floors is 'cold, cold, cold'!

  4. This is the nicest home I've seen in ages! Really loveable.

  5. What a great space!! The contrast between the natural wood beams and the industrial concrete floor gives it great character! I definitely prefer this floor to the glossier version.......that's only on a practical level as the herd of children I look after would use the glossy version as an ice rink!! :-/

  6. In my book, polished concrete adds to the sexy factor every time!

  7. Though the architetctural Style is quite minimalistic & 'clean' it looks very cosy & comfy... love it!

  8. I love the textures - maybe it's the photography, but even though it's a minimalist space it's somehow touchy-feely.

  10. Hi Niki! I like the beams and brick walls. They give warmth to the space but I'd put some curtains on those windows!
    By other hand, I would be so grateful if you (and your followers, of course) could visit my semi-new blog. You're so inspirational for me! Thanks :)

  11. Love concrete floors, but only the really glossy ones. Other than this, its a beautiful home. Great dining room styling.

  12. Great choice of materials and use of natural lighting. It's nice to see older structures remodeled like this.
