Text description provided by the architects. Casa Berentzen is a villa for a family of four; a father, mother and two daughters. The house is located in Jutland, more specifically South of Aarhus, Denmark's second largest city. The site is situated on the edge of the city but faces an open landscape. In addition to the house, the dwelling consists of a garage and a closed courtyard. The two-story dwelling is designed with an understanding of the sites inherent views, sun orientation, and clients desire for privacy, and the house's program is carefully considered around the family's daily life. The upper level contains the kitchen, dining room, living room, and adjacent courtyard.
The two daughters have their own area on the lower floor, which consists of their private rooms, a common dance studio, a workroom, bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. The interior of the house is designed based on a desire for clear lines of sight, emphasizing the pure architecture by capturing daylight and views. The materials are predominantly travertine, light oak and white walls and ceilings. The exterior of the house is predominantly comprised of a long slim format brick, which contrasts the soft interior. The robust and distinctive brick exterior of the house contrasts against the rolling Danish landscape. The brickwork is divided into three distinctive brick bands which encompass both, the garage building and accompanying patio, and define the windows as glass voids within the rustic brickwork.
