A Cylindrical Log Home, Nestled on the Island of Møn
On the island of Møn in Denmark, nestled in the forrest just a stone’s throw from the beach, you’ll find Birkedal.
Designed and built by Danish architect Jan Henrik Jansen, this nature-inspired log house is comprised of nine cylinders, all boasting large windows, letting the outside in.
It’s quiet–both in appearance and in construction. Built using wood and stone native to the land, the property took five years from its conception to completion, a labour of love that was well worth the wait.
Despite some pops of gold, the interior is a whisper of cream tones, leather and shades of brown. Complete with only the essentials, this log home is a sobering take on minimalism. Bathroom, kitchen or bedroom, each room is filled only with the necessities so as not to distract from the view of the outdoors.
Impressive without imposing on the land, Birkedal weaves a story of practicality and precision. From the hidden, understated built-in storage to the ripple of circular shapes used throughout, just a look brings an air of calm.
