    Scandinavian architecture firm C.F. Møller forges a serene home in Aarhus, Denmark.

    Located in Aarhus, Denmark, Villa R is a minimalist, serene structure clad in zinc panels. "The objective was to create a house that brings the forest inside through large glass panels—and create an ever-changing seasonal backdrop for the interior living spaces," stated the architecture firm, C.F. Møller, of the 3,200-square-foot abode.

    Local building codes dictated that the structure should only be a single story and could only occupy 20 percent of the property. The architects cleverly designed downward to create a basement-level living space.

    Smithfield pendant lights by Jasper Morrison for Flos illuminate the dining table. Natural wood floors and neutral hues create a spare, yet warm, aesthetic.

    Built-in kitchen cabinets and a monolithic island help keep the space uncluttered. The wall ovens are from Gaggenau.

    Design classics like the Tolomeo wall sconce and Componibili table round out the bedroom.
