On the edge of Denmark’s oldest national park, just a five-minute walk from the North Sea and the surfing paradise of Cold Hawaii, The Frame House masterfully stages the view of the small, blue-grey lake and the sandy green expanse of Thy.
Designed by Danish architect Søren Sarup, the single-storey building forms a flat wedge-shaped profile between the dune landscape and the horizon. The focus is on the scenery outside, the surrounding houses are subtly faded out. The view of the lake opens up as soon as you step onto the terrace and continues into the interior. The interplay of clouds, weather and light can be observed from every room, from sunrise to sunset.
In addition to the central, open-plan living space, there are five bedrooms, one of which is located in a small outbuilding. Each of the rooms, lined with light-coloured wooden panels, has large glass fronts and varied, interlocking structures – from straight to angled – as well as direct access to the terrace. The skylight above the shower in one of the two bathrooms also sets the stage for the wandering clouds. Those who prefer an even more natural setting can shower outside or enjoy the tranquil landscape from the window of the warm sauna. In addition to the exposed concrete floors with underfloor heating, all rooms are furnished in a minimalist style with Scandinavian design. After all, it’s all about the connection with nature, which comes to life even more directly on the wide wooden terrace with seating and lounging areas.
