An architect mixes shapes and composition to create a landscape-inspired vacation home.

Guided by Nordic design principals that prioritize connection with nature, the freshly completed vacation home—formally known as Light House—offers the gateway to an unforgettable Scandinavian experience.

Designed by Søren Sarup of Danish firm Puras Architecture, the 1,647-square-foot property is located near the coast of the North Sea, and sits in the quaint Danish village of Agger. Surrounded by the lakes, beaches, and sand dunes of Thy National Park, the dwelling radiates peace and serenity.

The home consists of two different interlocking structures. One has a sloping, rectangular, pent roof volume with broad windows, Douglas fir panel sidings, and a horizontal profile, while the other unit is a slate-covered A-frame with a sharp roof rising above the rectangular form.
