Located in the Danish countryside on the island of Fyn, the Villa Korup replaces a home that was destroyed in a fire for a family of six. The collaboration between Jan Henrik Jansen Arkitekter and Marshall Blecher takes on a three-legged layout creating a trio of unique outdoor spaces — a sunny south-facing courtyard, a garden off the kitchen, and a orchard cum playground. On the interior, its floor plan establishes a central core for communal gatherings while private areas are spread throughout the wings. The dwelling is made entirely from cross-laminated timber and utilizes robotically manufactured panels crafted from sustainable Baltic fir, allowing for assembly in just tree days. Clad in raw weathering steel, the exterior facade will patina in phases over time.
