Imagine a green, fairy tale setting and there a black sculptural parallelepiped emerging: trust me, there is nothing like a black background to enhance luxurious greenery and give it a contemporary twist. This is the case of architect Rasmus Bak and Lene Bak's summer cottage in Aarhus, Denmark. The surroundings are integrated into the architecture generating a seamless transition between inside and outside. In the open kitchen, the couple decorated with furniture that both underlines the summer house's simplicity but also adds warmth and texture to the bright room. The family prefers to bath outdoors during summer so they closed part of the patio next to the bedroom to place the shower and bathtub. The terrace is designed as an extension of the living room and the severity of raw concrete is soften by three square flowerbeds planted with perennials and shrubs, like Echinacea and Hydrangeas. Cylindric black pots are located in the corners of the terrace to provide space for a small Mediterranean garden. I love how the Ikea dining table fits with the HEE dining chairs from HAY!
