Architect Jan Henrik Jansen has designed and built single-handedly a modern home in the bucolic Danish island of Møn.

Created as a peaceful family retreat, the home has a design composed of nine interlinked cylindrical volumes that have been constructed with timber frames and clad with narrow spruce branches, a waste product of the forestry industry.

Inside, each space is located within one of the cylinders, like the living room, which includes a large curved window seat, which also has a fireplace at one end.

Another circular space is home to the dining room and kitchen. The white walls complement the painted board and batten wall cladding, which are included to provide a calm backdrop for the constantly changing textures and colors of the agricultural landscape seen through the windows.
