danish firm johansen skovsted arkitekter transforms a cottage and shed sited in the protected landscape of denmark. initially built in 1905, the project is situated among historic vacation homes carefully placed along slopes of overgrown moraine and sand dunes, rising from surrounding flatlands. the reconstruction’s ambition is to recreate the sense and atmosphere of being in the heritage building before it was left unused and timber infestation made restoration unavoidable. the structure, originally built as a pair of log cabins, is reimagined as a wooden light-frame construction, with an exterior maintaining the protected expression of the original house. the new interior interprets memories and accumulated features for contemporary conditions, informed by the modern structure.

It was 1968. I was 8 years old. The space race was in full swing. For the first time, a space probe had recently landed on another planet (Venus). And I was eagerly studying everything I could to do with space. Then on April 2, 1968 (May 15 in the UK), the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey was released—and I was keen to see it.
