WHY PLY­WOOD?

‘I wanted this house to be mod­ern, so the walls are clad with

pan­els of pine ply­wood of the best qual­ity,’ says ar­chi­tect Flem­ming Skude of his hol­i­day home on the Dan­ish is­land of Lol­land. ‘I have loved wood all my life – it’s beau­ti­ful to look at, warm to touch and smells good.’ Built in 1999 and po­et­i­cally named the ‘Sky of Heaven House’, his build­ing’s de­sign is an ex­plo­ration of the dec­o­ra­tive qual­i­ties of this raw ma­te­rial. Step in­side and you are struck by the drama of its an­gled ply­wood walls that play with both tex­ture and per­spec­tive. The richly grained wood lends the prop­erty’s con­tem­po­rary lines a soft, nat­u­ral feel. ‘I like that wood is eco­log­i­cal,’ says Flem­ming. ‘It’s nice to think that new trees are grow­ing as you use it, and that it can be reused or turned into fuel.’ flem­mingskude.com

HON­EST AND HAND­MADE

A sim­ple in­te­rior un­folds against a back­drop of ply­wood and hand-built fix­tures. ‘Den­mark has a long tra­di­tion of mak­ing fur­ni­ture from wood, which I have cel­e­brated in this house,’ says Flem­ming, as he ush­ers us into the kitchen, which fea­tures be­spoke stor­age that max­imises the space. ➤
