Nordic architecture is not only known for its simplicity in design, but furthermore for a strong adaption to the context
The first issue of the Nordic New Golden Age book trilogy captures one of many Nordic inspired dwellings. With its minimalistic expression and natural materials, it is hidden in the landscape to inhale the beautiful view of Aarhus Bay. In Villa Albertsen, located in Aarhus, the architects Luplau & Poulsen Arkitekter are adapting the surroundings down to the very last detail. As they quote;
“A view to the horizon has inspired a horizontal design right down to the extended oblong brick format.”
