Roof House by Leth & Gori is an upwards extension.

Details: Leth & Gori’s Roof House is a project that completely transforms an existing villa in Fredensborg, Denmark.

Situated on a large tree-filled site, the house is occupied by a family with three children – the specific needs of the family formed the basis of the project.

Planning restrictions on the site called for a careful and minimal approach and this lead to the idea of extending the house upwards by adding a series of roof buildings.

Extending the project this way adds a new bedroom and a workspace as well as skylights and sleeping platforms for all the children’s bedrooms.

In addition the project includes a redesign of the facade making it more energy efficient and adding new and larger openings.

Say the architects, “The new roof opens up the house towards the tree tops and the sky. The changing light filtered through the branches. The sound of the wind in the trees.”

A roof like this in your home is good for ventilation and pulling out the moisture and humidity from your home. It is also useful in winter to paas on sunlight for a beautfiul effect and lightning. Shapes are also very important speciallt in hilly areas all over the world. Nice sharing and a good learning for new entrants. Images are taken beautifully.
