Peter’s House is a private residence in Copenhagen, created for the famous Danish photographer Peter Krasilnikov. The creators of this magic are the masters from Studio David Thulstrup. They managed almost all the processes – interior design, from idea, planning, concept and design of architecture and interiors to building management and furniture selection. The design is focused on the central mirror atrium, which spreads to all three floors of the residence with natural light. The atrium is full of greenery, plants and a tree that can be seen from all floors, creating a central and bright oasis.
Architectural inspiration arose from worn out warehouses and factories with their black steel and old bricks.
Studio David Thulstrup share their inspiration:
The concept, which was caused by the desire to keep the three brick walls of the old garage in place. In addition, we saw inspiration in the city gardens on the roof and in the innovative green areas of buzzing cosmopolitan cities – to respond to the client’s request for a single green space.
The range of materials includes concrete, terrazzo, oak wood from Dinesen, original brick works, Kvadrat textiles in rich shades and black steel – both smooth and perforated. The result of the roof design was a surprise, given the smoothness of the interior design, but welcomes (or, perhaps, strengthens) the underlying earth elements in space that make it feel warm and cozy. The perfect combination of theater, fad and earth, Peter’s House — it’7s absolutely beautiful.
