Norm.Architects have created some of the most beautiful residential projects. Their aesthetic is that of timeless minimalism and Scandinavian simplicity, not clinical but clean and lived-in. In this seaside property, Vedbæk House III, this is aided by the earthy colour palette, neutral shades of beige, stone, copper and brown feel comforting, not harsh.
The floors throughout are not just beautiful but functional, stunning graphic tiles in the hallway where footfall will be highest, tinted and polished concrete in the living/dining area and soft warm wood in the bedroom. The kitchen worktop appears to be reclaimed wood, not polished granite or marble, as we’ve come to expect from minimalist interior design. The mix of chairs around the dining room are Modernist classics, a Hans Wegner Wishbone and an Eames DSR, amongst them.
There’s a sympathetic mix of old and new. The gold-tinted antiqued mirror in the bathroom gives the room a decadent feel without going overboard on details. The vintage display cabinet in the dining area shows off a modist collection of handmade pottery. And then there’s that amazing wine cellar, revealed through a glass window in the kitchen floor.
There’s an honesty about this property, it’s full of beautiful interior finds but it isn’t showy.
