Island of Læsø, Denmark

This summerhouse is exemplary of how Kjærholm considered architecture as a harmonious whole in which materials, the interplay of daylight and interior decoration should be carefully thought out.
Palazzolo della Stella (Udine), Italy, 1927 · Milan, Italy, 2012
The exhibition itinerary has been organised on three levels and the central nave of the pre-existing station has been reused as the main axis from where passages and terraces run. The choice of light-coloured limestone is worthy of note, giving a particular brightness to the exhibition halls.
