House on Fanø by lenschow & pihlmann

House on Fanø is a minimalist residence located in Fanø, Denmark, designed by lenschow & pihlmann. Fanø’s longhouse has been the inspiration for a new single-family house on Fanø an Island in the Wadden Sea. The typology is characterized by its elongated shape where the barn and habitation were traditionally placed under a continuous roof. To protect against the harsh west winds of the island, they are oriented from east to west. They are simple and robust in their detailing and clear in their use and application of materials. The house can be seen as a new interpretation of the traditional long house typology.
