Information: After having owned the house for a couple of years the owners wanted to add more space to the house. The owners were very open to the use of materials and how the building plan should be approached. "I chose to draw the new extension so that it created an angle with the old house - so there would be good outdoor spaces”, explains the architect. The original old house is a brick house with tiled roof. As often is the connecting building between the old and the new that is causing the architect greatest problems. But here Rikke Oeberg choose to make a transparent corridor for furniture with flat roof and large glass facades, so you can now look through the house from south to north.
