The landscape surrounding the Danish fishing village of Agger is characterized by water, beaches, dunes and heathlands. The Light House is situated only 650 meters from the North Sea coast, opposite a small lake.
The building is composed of two very different structures: a horizontal pent roof house, with broad windows and Douglas fir panelling, and a vertical slate-roofed A-shaped house. In the pent roof house, with its open, transparent design, you will find an open living, dining and cooking area, a bedroom and a bathroom. Here you will always feel close to nature – even from the bathtub you can enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding dune landscape. The pointed roof house features two more bedrooms, a bathroom and a gallery under the gable. This room, with sleeping space for 2 children, offers panoramic views over the Flade Lake, across the dunes, and out to the Lodberg Lighthouse.
