Bruun Rasmussen / Færch-Jensen
Natural transitions between outdoors and indoors. Shady corners for resting during the day. Old apple trees from when the house was originally built. At the Bruun Rasmussen/Færch-Jensen villa
in Gentofte most of the day is spent in the beautiful old garden, which is the hub of their life, and where the vegetable garden has grown larger as time has passed. The flower beds and the beautiful trees and shrubs keep them busy weeding, pruning, etc. throughout the day.
This is where the warm summer evenings are spent in the light of lanterns and glass. This is where life is lived, where people chat, reflect and gather – whether it is the family, children, or friends who stop by. Where the changing seasons and course of nature are closely followed as plants and flowers come and go. And where the sight of the day’s tasks is enjoyed in the backyard or from the wonderful new bench at the terrace that tempts you to indulge in lazy days with your feet up and fresh-brewed coffee. Up against the house and with a view of lovely perennials, newly planted urns and old roses.
The garden room is the setting for the months between summer and winter, warm and cold weather, and it is also where dinner is normally served – at least as long as there are less than twelve people for the meal, and the temperature is suitable. One thing is certain, though, no matter if it’s outdoor or indoor, or has to do with moving flower beds, planting hedges, making mistakes or other things that take time – the irresistible urge to try something else and to add something new is always there!
