    House of Finn Juhl

      The house of Finn Juhl is characterized by the relationship between the room and another room. Relationship between the garden and open planed rooms, side views through the window of the stove fire, except from the room next door arrangement has become very well-planned structure. In particular, the continuity of outer space and the large opening to the floor, capturing the natural way, and the floor height closes to the ground, I can say that it got some influence from traditional Japanese homes.

      In 1941, Finn Juhl started to build his house on a magnificant site in Ordrup, outside Copenhagen. He was inspired by Arne Jacobsen. But his philosophy was quite diferent. he thought from the inside to the outside. The facades were secondary and were to express the ideas behind the floor plan.
      His house is early example of the socalled open-plan, a plan with a floating transition between rooms, quite different rooms in older houses sharply defined by partition walls.

      This house is filled with Finn Juhl's wishes and philosophy.
