 Solklint, 5 cluster houses in Egå, Denmark. C.F. Møller

Client

The Building Consortium Solklint

Address

Aarhus, Denmark

Size

950 m², 5 units

Year

1974

The five buildings are situated on a large terrace that concludes a terrain sequence towards the flat Egå valley and Vejlby Fed.

The design of the five buildings is determined by the location at the top of a point in Egå, near Aarhus, and the access to the individual homes is through a common courtyard with seating, playgrounds etc.

From the courtyard's tile-clad plaza, the houses arise like a flower that unfolds and crowns the terrace. Narrow views and passages between the houses link the courtyard with Vejlby Fed, Egå and the bay. Each house has a view of Aarhus Bay.

The houses vary in size and each of them are designed around a common living space going through two storeys and following the building profile.

The complex is constructed in red, hard-burned brick, with wall crowns and sills of reversed Hasle stoneware pipes. Ventilation ducts, spews from the balcony and “blinkers” provide decorative details in the gables.
