No ordinary house.
In 1942 a house was build on Kratvænget 15 in Ordrup. No ordinary house. It was designet by an 30 years old young and ambitious architect named Finn Juhl. The house, which was a brilliant example of the modernisms breakthrough in danish design and architecture, was made for him and his former wife Inge-Marie Skaarup. Finn Juhl lived there until his death in 1989.
Finn Juhl thought of everything. The interior, choise of colors both in and outside, the light and even the outside surroundings and the garden was carefully planned.
The house is filled with Finn Juhls own designs such as The Poet, The Bone Chair, a pair of NV45's and of cource a Chieftain Chair - but also creations from colleagues such as Nanna Ditzel, Poul Henningsen and Vilhelm Lauritzen, who Finn Juhl worked for for about 10 years after graduating in 1934, were part of the stunning decor. Furthermore works from Erik and Anna Thommesen, Asger Jorn and Vilhelm Lundstrøm were represented in the house.
In 2007 Finn Juhls house was donated to Ordrupgaard Museum, and they opened the doors for the excited visitors in April 2008.
