studio david thulstrup combines wood, brick, and steel for private copenhagen residence

studio david thulstrup has combined wood, brick, and steel to create this private residence in copenhagen. the building, which was previously a pencil factory, has been completely transformed — thanks in part to a central atrium that contains grasses, plants, and a tree. this glass-walled atrium can be seen from almost everywhere in the house and fills all three floors with natural light. the green atrium gives life to the building and contrasts the other dark colors, steel, and brick surfaces found throughout the home.

the property, which is located in close proximity to copenhagen’s harbor, is the private home and studio of danish photographer peter krasilnikoff who worked closely with studio david thulstrup on the project. wide dinesen HeartOak boards have been used to clad the walls and for flooring in some of the areas of the building, adding light and nature to the mix of materials.

the central staircase that leads to the first floor is made of perforated blackened steel, while the ground floor has soft light curtains and a terrazzo-lined bathroom in a soft grey tone. the backwall in the kitchen is in steel, and the kitchen itself features italian terrazzo and was custom made for the house by studio david thulstrup. the home also features a rooftop terrace with plants, more intimate spaces, and a view of the atrium.
