Designed by Søren Sarup of Danish firm Puras Architecture, the 1,647-square-foot property is located near the coast of the North Sea, and sits in the quaint Danish village of Agger. Surrounded by the lakes, beaches, and sand dunes of Thy National Park, the dwelling radiates peace and serenity.

Typical of modern Scandinavian homes, the interiors are bright and airy.

The home consists of two different interlocking structures. One has a sloping, rectangular, pent roof volume with broad windows, Douglas fir panel sidings, and a horizontal profile, while the other unit is a slate-covered A-frame with a sharp roof rising above the rectangular form. 

The house can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests.

Classic modern Danish furniture and a wood-burning fireplace are set against white walls and pale wood floors. This design works together with the striking architecture and surrounding nature to create a retreat with plenty of stylish, hygge vibes.
