ADEPT completes Villa Platan between land and sea Danish architecture firm ADEPT has completed a private villa in Aarhus on the shores of the sea, and its unique location is one of its true strengths. Sea views are an integral part of the architectural project.


Design a home that makes the surrounding environment not a backdrop but the real protagonist of the architecture. This was the design brief for Danish firm ADEPT, who our readers are familiar with for their empathetic approach to the clients' needs (like the Sonorous Museum in Copenhagen or KU.BE House with MVRDV)
As Anders Lonka, partner at ADEPT explains, “The villa was designed with the unique location as one of the main inspirations. Living in this home is an ever-changing experience of nature as the building itself frames the sea and the sky.”
Which is why the layout of the villa is structured in four communicating volumes which seamlessly merge and transition with gentle, curved connections to generate courtyards that are protected from the wind. 
The structure is designed horizontally, so each of the four oak-framed elements has a different function, and while they are completely open to the sea and the endless horizon on one side, they are closed on the street side, where the handmade grey brick facing sets up an intimate connection with the land, making the building look as if it were born from that very land. This impression is further underscored by the organic, flowing architecture, furnished with a few bespoke pieces.
The design by ADEPT of Villa Platan makes it look like a light brushstroke on the palette of the maritime territory of Aarhus in Denmark, a simple but highly elegant and profound action, where the true luxury is the intimacy with the natural environment.
