Town house in black and white

Østerbro, Denmark

A union building from 1898 at the outskirts of Østerbro, Copenhagen, is today a modern home for a family of six. Playing with the contrasts of black and white and new versus old, the owners have through a vast renovation process given the five-storey house a personal and graphic twist.

Meet the family

A family of six counting Sofie Christensen Egelund and Frank Christensen Egelund and their four children. As third generation in Vipp and granddaughter of Vipp-founder, Holger Nielsen, Sofie didn’t inherit her passion for functional design from strangers. Still the essence of the company and the family’s shared DNA, functionality was indeed the mantra when renovating the more than 100-year-old town house from basement to the fourth floor before the family moved in.
