Five Little Houses

Summer House on Sjælland – design by JVA, Architects

18 Sep 2015

Five Little Houses on Zealand

Location: Zealand, Denmark

Design: JVA

The site for Five Little Houses is located in a beautiful but windy summerhouse village on the northern tip of Sjælland, Denmark.

Five Little Houses

The program is divided between five separate houses. The circulation area is the outdoors. The houses are laid out in a star shape, in order to provide different outdoor spaces where shelter from the wind always can be found.


The ridge and cornice of the houses are on the same height, while the width and length vary. This gives the roofs different angles, making a playful composition in relation to the surrounding summer houses. The inner courtyard is clad with a darker stone on the floor and walls to store heat from the day throughout the evening.
