Japanese Danish House Design

The 3,000 square meter house was designed as a weekend getaway for a family living in New York and is located between forest and meadow. It has a terrace and a pool. It was designed by New York interior designer Magdalena Keck to create a “harmony” between Japanese minimalism, mid-century design and American craftsmanship. The studio designed the glass-fronted interiors of the gabled house to bring out the natural charm of the place and to take into account the homeowners’ Japanese and American backgrounds.

The design is equally shaped by the fascination of the beauty and balance of nature, especially given the location and purpose of the house as well as the passion to dive deep, take apart and put back together again.

Wooden floors, wall cladding made of white oak and aspen and dark wood paneling form the backdrop for the various pieces of furniture and furnishings. The new pieces selected by Keck are closely related to these details. Hardware and fasteners are available in either unpainted brass or bronze to further enhance the cohesive aesthetic. Numerous customer-specific wood and storage solutions are integrated into the wood-clad walls. This includes cupboards, a desk and shelves, as well as a pantry and storage room for laundry. Local furniture makers were employed to bring American craftsmanship to the project. Wood slats are used to separate another seating area on this level, anchored by a large white sofa and woven mats from Tokyo.

The house has three minimally furnished bedrooms, a lawn, a terrace and an outdoor pool. A workshed and guest house will be added later.
