In the countryside of Fanø, a popular summer destination on Jutland's west coast, lies this charming house built in 1818 by Jens Fisker. Now it has become a summer house for a family.
The house was in desperate need of renovation and has been cared for by local craftspeople with the expertise to renovate old houses with respect and a high regard for local building traditions.
From the outside, passers-by might never guess that the interior of the house has undergone a major transformation. The goal was to preserve the charming original look. The yellow façade and the beautiful thatched roof have been carefully preserved and given new life. The exterior wall was restored with new stones, just as the old anchorages and decorations on the façade were refurbished.
Reinholdt // Rud chose solid plank floors of Dinesen Douglas throughout the house to complement the maritime atmosphere in and outside the home. The stylish kitchen counter and stairs to the upper floor are also made of distinct Douglas fir.
