The design team behind Denmark’s house of the future are making their home in the former Scandinavian state of Greenland, a new report claims.
The “ScandiHouse” was built in a forested area of the northern Swedish city of Akureyri, the Copenhagen Post reported, citing the design team as saying that they had to create a house with a unique design that’s more modern than the average Nordic house.
The new home is expected to open later this year in Copenhagen.
According to the Danish Architecture Foundation, the design is meant to represent a Scandinavian-style house in an environmentally friendly way.
“The design of the house was inspired by the traditional Scandinavian building styles,” the foundation said in a statement.
“It was a conscious choice to design a house which is made of wood and with a modern and modern-inspired design that is more sustainable and eco-friendly than typical Nordic houses.
The house has a central open space and it has a wide staircase that leads to the roof of the home.”
The new home will be open for public tours next year.
