Our Readers’ Favourites: The Most Popular DETAIL-online Articles in September

In September, our readers were particularly enthusiastic about the following three contributions: The experimental Villa Korup in Denmark, a museum remodeling in Aberdeen and finally a single-family residence, which is in Takatsuki, Japan.

Shiny patina: Villa Korup by Jan Henrik Jansen and Marshall Blecher

After a Danish family’s house was destroyed in a fire, the experimental Villa Korup is now to help to bring about a new start. Its materials were to age in a controlled manner involving colours that change over time. The choice fell on cross-laminated timber and steel panels.

A new rooftop for art: Museum remodeling by Hoskins Architects in Aberdeen

Next level: House in Takatsuki by Tato Architects

Tato Architects have taken the split-level concept to new heights at the ‘House in Takatsuki’. As in other projects by the architects, the building is a single-family residence offering room for living, working, cooking and sleeping on a number of floor levels, in this case 16 altogether. Resembling a surreal labyrinth in its unconventional design, the interior is reminiscent of work by M.C. Escher.
