Danish design in Cedar Wood and Zink

While preparing for this weekend's lectures in homestaging & interior design, I came across these images of Danish architect Kim Utzon's own home and summer cottage. Both houses are his own design. Of course. First Kim & Charlotte Utzon's home near Helsingør, Denmark, where the vertical structure consists of wooden telephone poles, as seen in the space below. 

Below are a set of images from the Utzon's three room, 100 square meters, summer house in in Tibirke, Denmark. Build with lots of reused material, it didn't cost more than 50.000 €. All designed for easy living some two to four weeks a year.
The building material is cedar wood. Inside out. The cedar will age beautifully and eventually turn gray, like the zink roof. The idea is that the cottage - eventually - will blend in and become one with the surrounding landscape.
Above: The the wicker chair is designed by Arne Jacobsen. The sofa is from Minotti , and the chair and table is from David Design There's no art through out the house - the framed "images" are all views of the landscape outside.
Love the steel kitchen from Bulthaup - it makes a raw industrial contrast to all the warm, soft wood. The diningtable is from Frydendahl, and the pendant is designed by Noguchi Akari.
Kim Utzon, is best known as the son of Sydney Opera House architect Jørn UtzonMore images here
