Danish Prefab

“The idea was to make small spaces appear large and friendly,” Berlin-based architect Sigurd Larsen says of his latest project in Copenhagen. Working with a budget of just $130,000, he designed a prefabricated house for a single mother and her two young children that‚ despite clocking in at just 861 square feet, feels far from cramped. “By including the garden visually through floor-to-ceiling windows and extending the rooms to the full allowed height of 15 feet, it became a spacious and pleasant place to be.”
