Beautifully designed and printed in Copenhagen by Dyva & Jeppersens Bogtrykkeri A/S. From the book: “The purpose of this book, which is a continuation of “21 Danske Enfamiliehuse” published in 1949, is to give a general view of the building activity between 1949 and 1953.
“To the future house owner it is a technical guide and might also serve as an inspiration in aesthetics and to architects from other countries. It provides a section of this special branch of Danish architecture spanning from the traditional dwelling to the extreme experimental and international inspired one-family-house.
“The interior decorators Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel relate the problems of interior decoration and architect Tage Werner Kristiansen accounts for the general planning and the present possibilities of obtaining grants illustrated by instructive schedules.
“Landscape-gardner Georg Boye shows by help of sketches and explanatory text four examples of recently designed gardens, and tells about the garden layout, specially related to the small one-family-house.
Apart from the 22 one-family-houses you will find drawings and photographs of 4 holiday cabins which in spite of their unorthodox planning have a lot in common with the best of todays one-family-houses.”
