Damhussø House

Extension and alterations
170 sqm
2020 - ongoing

Djernes & Bell are extending a single family brick house to provide more connection to the large existing garden.  The idea is to provide an enfilade of spaces that weave the existing house and new extension together and activate both front and back gardens which are currently disconnected from the main house. This is as opposed to many contemporary extension designs which try to take the primary focus and tend to remove life from the existing building.

Formal hints have been taken from the traditional detailing and elements such as the sprocket eaves and bay windows.
