Light and easy-going: The former coastal farm Vesterlandet in the Danish fishing village of Agger is a reinterpreted overall concept of glass, wood and sand tones that houses two airy, bright apartments as well as versatile office space and the regional restaurant Tri as well as an ice cream café. Only 150 metres from the North Sea and right next to the wonderfully wild Thy National Park.
Together with his wife Maria Louise, architect Søren Sarup has created a clear and bright building in which modern architecture is built on original substance. Both holiday units have a private courtyard, are open plan and designed for two people. However, there is also room for families with a small child and guests with a dog. An additional highlight is the large window front of each flat.
With minimalist Danish classics and simple, comfortable furniture, both apartments concentrate on the essentials – including the bathroom and a small, fully equipped kitchen. If you want to expand your living space, all you have to do is open the French doors to your own wooden terrace with open-air shower.
Those who have some work to do can rent one of the office rooms on an hourly or daily basis. The Tris restaurant, which is also part of the complex, provides conscious culinary art with products from the region, and its orangery offers not only a gastronomic but an overall visual experience. A holistic holiday destination that blends contrasts – old and new, private and in the middle of it all, nature and culture, holiday and work.
