In the bungalow by Billund Hansen architects, the natural material wood creates a cozy atmosphere.

In the far northwest of the Danish island of Funen lies the small village Strib. It’s here that Billund Hansen Architekten have built a spacious L-shaped bungalow close to the beach, with a broad glass façade, white-painted walls and cedarwood cladding, creating a stark contrast with the gabled roofs of the typical houses on the island.
 
In order to create a homely atmosphere in the rooms, architect Anette Billund decided on solid HeartOak planks by Dinesen: At up to six meters long, they make the generous 257 square meters of living space bright and cozy. The raw timber for the planks came from 200-year-old oak trees and thus brings a particularly powerful radiance. The natural cracks in the oak planks have been preserved and are fixed with loop-shaped inserts, so-called butterfly joints. The oak planks help to create a flowing transition between the rooms, and thanks to their durability they could also be used for the treads of the staircase. They have been finished with nothing but natural oil, so the original charm of the wood and its pleasing appearance have been preserved. And thanks to the underfloor heating, the owner of the house can still enjoy the feel of the planks under bare feet even on colder days. (am)
