Duravit

A piece of Danish architecture and design history

Strandvejen, or Strandweg, is the name of the 42 km long road that leads from Copenhagen to Elsinore – along the increasingly narrow Sont. Almost every building here has an undeniable history besides its name. The “Strandridergården” in Vedbæk was built in the early 19th century by the Royal Danish Customs as a guardhouse. Later, a wine merchant bought the farm and built a palatial new building using plans by renowned Danish architect Thorvald Bindesbøll.

After World War II, the villa was converted into a children’s home. At the time, Poul Henningsen, one of the most important Danish designers of the 20th century, was responsible for the renovation.

After a renovation of more than two years, the villa shines again in its former glory. The project is an example of how an older building that has been rebuilt several times can be restored to its original form while meeting the demands of the times.

The new residents of “Strandridergården” enjoy extensive luxury: a fitness and wellness room in the basement, an orangery, an outdoor pool with pool house, a beach house, a garage with car elevator and last but not least a plot of land of more than 3,000 m2 with its own jetty.

The total of 14 bathrooms underscore the exquisite style of the property. Matching the classic modern interior, they are fully equipped with products from the Luv series:
oval basins combined with console tables and oval bathtubs. The bathroom series combines Scandinavian elegance with soft colors and was developed by Duravit in collaboration with Cecilie Manz. The internationally successful designer belongs to the new generation of Danish designers who confidently continue the Scandinavian designer heritage with sophisticated designs. The fact that Cecilie Manz received the Thorvald Bindesbøll Award in 2011 is an interesting link to the eventful history of “Strandridergården.”
