It blows and you look up into the ceiling glass pyramid, you see gray clouds that flits past like a silent movie. Out of the room’s 270-degree panoramic windows, one sees a hissing sea where surfers now and then flits pas.
From the living room in the house, designed by Hanne Kjærholm, you look out on a picture in wide-screen.
A small wooden pavilion without heat, only usable in good weather and eventually impossible to repair, so it had nothing new to the unique location by the sea.
- I had friends who knew the architect Hanne Kjaerholm. They told me that she was famous for adapting its architecture to the area’s natural and architectural style, and it appealed to us greatly. For we wanted a holiday in close contact with nature, sky and sea – where the light had to play in from many angles.
Addition that there should be spacious terraces, sheltered to the east and west. When we saw her drawing and model of the house, we were sold, says the couple.
Hanne Kjærholm took inspiration from the old architectural style, which was now transferred to a 10.2 x 10.2 square meter pavilion. The main house was also supplemented by a guest annexe with proportions and roof pitch for the old farmhouses in Rørvig.

- It was important to us that there was a holiday and not a house. Main house and terraces should have space for many. At the same time it should also be possible to withdraw and be alone. Therefore, the idea of a full-function guest house.
With its staggered roof of black felt and black-and red-painted facades resemble the new main house an exotic pavilion, which in its own unique way blends beautifully into the landscaping. A quadratic kernel with the chimney in the middle, where the roof ends in a glass pyramid, which throws a flood of light into the room.
The masonry is filset, while the outer structure is made of wood, both inside and out, and where you normally place the front of the building parallel to the coastline, the architect has achieved the optimal view by rotating the housing 45 degrees, so there are sea views from both the eastern and southern facade, and the prospect of a large protected area to the north – in all, a gigantic panoramic view of the bay and the heat that overwhelms you when you enter the main room.
- With Hanne Kjærholm as an architect and construction manager, we chose an artist and also occupies a unique holiday. As a developer you must in turn put up with compromises with its own, very substantial, wants and costs. But today I am happy for the result, says Kristin Bielke.
