Bricks on the Inside
The Hunting Lodge at Henne Kirkeby Inn – by Tegnestuen Mejeriet architects
On the west coast of Denmark, we find the historic inn Henne Kirkeby Inn, which dates back to 1790. Tegnestuen Mejeriet, the architect studio known for its ability to renew architecture, took charge of a large-scale renovation of the inn buildings, starting in 2008. With the inn having a long history, it was important for the architect to retain the character of the buildings. As a part of the renovation of an additional house, ‘The Hunting Lodge’, was built to accommodate even more guests at the inn.Incidentally, it’s worth noting that Henne Kirkeby Inn is famous for serving great meals and have just been awarded a second Michelin star last year and is one of only three two-starred restaurants in Denmark. So, now you can enjoy the magnificent architecture of Henne Kirkeby Inn while eating at one of the best restaurants Denmark has to offer.
Villa Bayview – by E+N Architecture A/SThe completely new Villa Bayview is a perfect example of what we mean by the extended use of bricks in a house. Bringing the fabric into the house adds a certain style to the interior that’s often lacking in traditional homes. As architect Kjeld G. Ghozati explained: “Bricks have a wonderful quality that is very captivating when lightened by grazing. Using bricks for both the outside and the inside of a house binds the exterior and the interior together.” Being a brand new house offered endless possibilities when developing its architecture, but E+N Architecture A/S had a vision that aligned well with one of the contractors: “The contractor and the studio had a common dream of creating a villa that exudes materiality.”
