There is an architecturally impressive holiday home called Light House on the north-west coast of Denmark in Agger. As the name suggests, the house is flooded with light and also very visually appealing - a successful combination of modern and Scandinavian design. Since April 2018, guests have been enjoying the pleasant tranquility in the middle of nature.
It was designed by the Danish architect Søren Sarup, who once built it as a weekend home and spent his weekends there. The main thing with his buildings is that they are still happy to be looked at years later and are still well preserved. Now he would like to invite guests to get to know the natural beauty of Denmark and to come back again and again.
The numerous large glass surfaces allow a fantastic view of the surrounding nature from almost every room - the large lake Flade, meadows, trees, dunes or the (starry) sky. The latter is particularly beautiful to admire at sunrise and sunset.
Walks invite you to explore nature: on the lake you can see swans and otters, or birds from the nearby reserve, who are currently hunting for fish. Sometimes you have the chance to spot a deer walking by. The magical place is accompanied by the sound of the waves.

ArchitectureThe architecture is holistically sustainable. The design will last for several decades and will still look modern even after many years. It shows Nordic design tradition and the connection to nature. The warm wood surface and the clean, white edges create a relaxed atmosphere between the interior and exterior. In the Light House, responsibility towards nature is taken seriously; all decisions are made in an environmentally conscious manner. The house is designed so that it requires little maintenance. The wood paneling consists of Douglas fir wood, which comes from the surrounding area and lasts for at least 20 to 30 years. It can also be used later, for example for firewood. The roof tiles are made of slate, they come from northern Spain and can also be used for a very long time and have low emissions. Architect Søren Sarup particularly likes this material. The interior is elegant and at the same time minimalist. The chairs in the dining room are, for example, by the Danish designer Arne Jacobsen, many other Danish furnishing classics adorn the house. A free-standing bathtub offers a view of the sea, which is only 650 meters away. Most of the materials used come from local suppliers.
Local employees are employed. In addition, young people from the third world are given access to education.
EnvironmentThe house is very well insulated and therefore uses little heat. Good to know: More than 50% of the Danish energy is renewable, if it is windy, the value increases to 100%.
