Architect Visit: Norm Architecture Vedbaek House in Copenhagen

August 29, 2011

We’re always interested to see how architects live in their own homes, so when we spotted the house of Danish architect Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen on My Scandinavian Retreat, we took special note. Bjerre-Poulsen, a principal at Norm Architecture, lives with his family in Vedbækm, outside Copenhagen, in a traditional fishing cottage. Inside, however, it’s a different story; Bjerre-Poulsen has stripped the interiors and painted them a uniform shade of bright white; furnishings consist of midcentury classics. N.B.: Not only does Norm Architects create compelling minimalist interiors; they also have a growing portfolio of furniture and lighting designs. To see more of their work, go to Norm Architecture.
