Architect Pi Dehlie Kolbye, from Vandkunsten Architects, says: "We had a wish that all materials used for the project would appear natural and therefore patinate natural. This is why we have chosen raw untreated aluminium on the outer frames, openable sashes in oak and mahogany and inner frames in pinewood with clear lacquer. The visible wooden frames and openable sashes in hardwood are also chosen to create a warm atmosphere and homeliness in the rooms and at the same time to give the facade variation and warmth."
