Former Warehouse Turned Airy Home In Copenhagen
With an atrium garden, rooftop terrace and terrazzo kitchen to boost.
Located in the recently gentrified Islands Brygge area of Copenhagen, this former warehouse is now the spacious home of photographer Peter Krasilnikoff, and aptly named Peter’s House by the architecture firm behind the conversion, Studio David Thulstrup.
”Our inspiration evolved from worn-out warehouses and factories with their blackened steel and old bricks; a concept which was sparked by the desire to retain the three raw-brick walls of the old garage onsite. Additionally, we saw inspiration in urban rooftop gardens and innovative green zones of buzzing cosmopolitan cities – to answer the client’s request of an integrated green space.
The design is focused around a central mirror-clad atrium, which floods all three floors of the residence with natural light. The atrium is lush with specially selected grasses, plants and a feature tree which is visible from all floors – creating a central and bright oasis.”
I fell for the stunning terrazzo kitchen with the metal clad walls contrasting against the original brick wall.
