Danish Modern Elsinore

A look at Finn Juhl's personal residence in Ordrup, Denmark, now a museum.

The house where Finn Juhl lived and worked, located on a site adjoining Ordrupgaard museum park, was sold by the estate of Finn Juhl’s widow to Birgit Lyngbye Pedersen who, with the help of the Ministry of Culture, transferred the house to Ordrupgaard as a gift.

“The Post War period, which saw the golden age of Danish design, is so beautifully represented in Finn Juhl’s home. We boast of the architecture and design of the time, but we have preserved so little in its original state; here was a chance to preserve something unique.”....

The house, he designed and built as a young architect in 1942, is a unique example of Danish modernism for both architecture, furniture design and the visual arts.
A perfect example of Juhl’s long career as an architect and furniture designer the house, for which he designed all the furniture, looks almost exactly as it did when he died in 1989.
