Jarmund/Vigsnæs Arkitekter has designed a unique house in Denmark. The building appears quite ordinary from the outside and one might take it to be a small group of houses.

However, this house is split into five distinct structures, each hosting a different part of the house.

The house sits in a fascinating, windy summerhouse village on the northern tip of Sjælland, Denmark.

The five separate units of this home in Denmark are used as a kitchen building, parents building, children’s building, guest building, and utility building.

All the five structures of the house are laid out in the shape of a star. This layout ensures that different outdoor spaces could be found from each unit of the house, to get shelter from the wind.

The ridge and cornice of each of the five houses are at the same height. However, the width and length of each unit varies from the other.

This rare architecture aligns the roofs at various angles.

The slanting roofs add a lively touch to the building, making it stand out in the neighborhood.

Darker stone has been inlaid in the inner courtyard to store heat during the day.

The white, pristine layout of the interior of the house gives it a wonderful ethereal quality.
