Peter’s House | A Copenhagen Home Inspired By Old Warehouses

Studio David Thulstrup designed Peter’s House as a private home project for photographer Peter Krasilnikoff. The house is located in Copenhagen and was inspired by old warehouses and factories. Not to forget the green zones and urban rooftop gardens that influenced the design as well.

Originally, on the site, there used to be a garage. The idea was for the new building to keep some of that old charm, specifically three raw brick walls. The exterior of the house is covered with Brazilian hardwood that over time will turn into a nice pale grey color.

It also provides all the rooms with natural light.

The central part of Peter’s House is the atrium that provides the house with plenty of natural light. Besides for lighting, the atrium also serves as a natural oasis. It’s filled with grass, plants, and even a tree. Because of the glass walls, all three floors of the house have the view of the atrium.

Peter's House Interior

The interior has bright walls, wooden and black steel elements.

As for the interior, the designers used white concrete walls as a contrast to the wooden elements and black steel staircase. The ground floor is where the dining room and big open-plan kitchen are. The bedrooms continue with the oak walls and floors as well as tall curtains.
