The basement includes garage, storage, wine cellar, game rooms, bathrooms and a large indoor swimming-pool area with direct access to the garden. Plan 0 includes the main entrance hall, a utility room, bedrooms, bathrooms, an open kitchen and a large living room with direct access to the lowest roof terrace.

villa stranden eva harlou architects architecture denmark design

 Villa Stranden is located by the east coast of Jutland, Denmark. The architecture is an interpretation of the classic Danish house with roof pitch. The special shape of the roof and the displacement of the facade sections make a much lighter architectural appearance. To ensure privacy the villa has a closed facade towards the access road. Towards the sea and the great view the villa has an open and maritime looking facade.

STUDENT HOME COLLEGE architecture eva harlou architects denmark copenhagen noerre alle interior design competition

This home for 50 students is located in the centre of Copenhagen, Denmark. The existing, old building is designed with a new, funky interior suitable for Danish and foreign students. The main concept is the circle that dictates all new interior and exterior design. The common areas are located in the centre of the building around a circular atrium that makes an open vertical connection through the building. The private homes are designed with a special feature - bookshelves with mirror walls that create great spatial effects. Using IR-technology the walls in the corridors are transformed into interactive touch screens connected to the students computers. Here students can communicate with other students even though they’re not in the same room.

STAR HOUSE (+STAR RESORT +STAR TOWER)

STAR HOUSE eva harlou danish architect HOUSING denmark architecture housing interior design

BOLIGMAGASINET design awards eva harlou danish architect denmark architecture housing interior design

Star House is designed to combine modern functionality and a highly innovative architectural language. Star House is a single family house suitable as a holiday house or as a all-year residence. The house varies in sizes from 100 to 150 sqm. Star House is shaped of two twisted triangles – one triangle creating the indoor areas and one triangle creating three outdoor terraces on each side of the house. The simple geometry of the house – with building elements repeating themselves all way round the house – makes the house very suitable as a system-built house and very suitable for prefabrication. It’s fast, easy and economic to produce and built the house, and it will be launched as a prototype house to be built in both Scandinavia and the rest of the world. The functionality of Star House is of high priority. The interior is very logical having private bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, storage etc. in the three corners of the building and a large central living room in the centre of the building. A large ceiling-light brings extra daylight into the central living room. Three large openings in the facades lead to the surrounding outdoor terraces and create great outlook in all directions. The simple star shape of the house makes it very easy to fit the house into very different sites with different access-roads, sun-positions and outlooks. Creating Star House it has also been of high priority to create a strong architectural language. The house is a strong icon with an almost futuristic architectural appearance. Multiple Star Houses in a resort will for instance be a very recognizable trademark.

Even though a “landmark”-effect is wanted it has still been important to create a house with a recognizable design to make the residents feel safe and comfortable. For instance the “star” is a simple well-known geometrical shape with straight calming lines and the facades are very quite, minimalistic and humane.
