Situated by the North Sea, near fjords, lakes and dunes, this holiday home interacts with its natural environment and integrates qualities of simple living. In keeping with Nordic design traditions are its closeness to nature, its use of light, and its airy openness. The warm wood surfaces against clean white and sharp edges, combined with modern Danish furniture classics, create a calm and relaxed atmosphere that breaks the boundary between indoor and outdoor life. The house is made up of three parts: an annex building, a wooden terrace and the main building. Four bedrooms are located in the annex with direct access to the terrace. The main house features an additional bedroom as well as an open kitchen with a dining table and living area with a fireplace. The south-facing facade has a large folding door that opens the kitchen onto the 180 sq m terrace. The wooden deck is designed with several corners and spaces that offer shade, shelter or a place in the sun – be it spring, summer or fall.
Why we like this house
Nature comes included. Here you can experience the elements with all your senses, thanks to the location and architecture. In summer, the large wooden terrace is transformed into an extra room beneath open skies.

Søren Sarup (born 1975) lives in Aarhus and Agger. The independent Danish architect works professionally in the planning and design of all building types, from summerhouses to multi-story buildings. Aavego was designed in 2006-2007 and built in 2007-2008 - and Søren did most of the work himself. He expects to have another unique summerhouse ready for the 2016 season.
