Clean and raw​

Karen Kjaergaard, Architect,

“When you use a material that is traditionally used in barns in a new way, you get a whole new look, which is really lovely. Steel plates have an incredibly beautiful finish and surface, and they perfectly meet the demands we make as architects. You get a nice combination of the raw and the refined. This is definitely not the last time I build using steel. My primary choices are aesthetic - but it does no harm that the material is maintenance-free and lasts for many years.

I visited DS Stålprofil in Hobro and immediately thought it was a great company. I was just a smallish customer, but I was treated beyond expectation. I was given a new contact person mid-process, but everything went smoothly – and, together, we found the most suitable solutions for the house. The level of service was really high, and I never had a hard time finding good and aesthetic solutions with them.”

Clean and raw... and yet so natural!

In the middle of the harsh and coastal nature at the Point of Zealand, Sjællands Odde, you find this holiday home. Could it be simpler and at the same time so beautiful? In an elegant and minimalist way, this house "makes its presence known" - without disturbing the surrounding landscape.

The steel plates emphasise the location in the middle of the harsh nature and reinforce the individual look of the architecture of this home. You get the feeling that the house was designed specifically for this place.
