architects: tegnestuen vandkunsten.
after the cohousing projects, vandkunsten had to redefine itself as the rest of the world changed. they designed a number of private rental projects in which the relationship to the landscape was explored and these remain the most elegant houses produced by the office.
one of the projects, birkerød søhuse, are rowhouses placed in an old garden facing birkerød lake, north of copenhagen. the houses and not least those amazing roofs carefully follow the slope of the terrain. water is gathered at the end of the roofs for use in the park-like garden.
nearby, related project 'dianas have' is here.
