Jesper Brask-weekend house

Danish architect Jesper Brask of Brask & Leonhardt designed and developed this modern looking weekend house for himself and his family by the Kattegat Fjord in Denmark. The house is built using 150 local trees that were cut into raw beams and left to dry for 3 years before construction work started. A large chimney made out of Kolumba tiles is a centerpiece of the house. The tiles were custom made for the house and are shaped and painted by hand with white clay paste before being dried and fired.  Huge windows, high ceilings and slanted ceilings add to the undisputed charm of the house.
