tommy rand’s design for the house comprises five boxes that always shift in façade lines and heights, resulting in a more dynamic form. the danish architect, who works with architecture and property developments in denmark with his company markholt & rand, designed the home, all its interiors, and the wooden furniture himself. the three main materials inside the building – concrete, oak, and norwegian skifer stone – are used in different combinations, balancing between raw and fine, cold and warm.tommy rand completes family house in denmark with spiral plywood staircase

 

 

visible from the outside thanks to floor-to-ceiling glazing, the spiral staircase becomes the centerpiece of the home. the staircase was made from 630 pieces of CNC cut plywood, which were assembled and glued on site, piece by piece.tommy rand completes family house in denmark with spiral plywood staircase tommy rand completes family house in denmark with spiral plywood staircase tommy rand completes family house in denmark with spiral plywood staircase tommy rand completes family house in denmark with spiral plywood staircase tommy rand completes family house in denmark with spiral plywood staircase tommy rand completes family house in denmark with spiral plywood staircase tommy rand completes family house in denmark with spiral plywood staircase tommy rand completes family house in denmark with spiral plywood staircase tommy rand completes family house in denmark with spiral plywood staircase tommy rand completes family house in denmark with spiral plywood staircase tommy rand completes family house in denmark with spiral plywood staircase
