A few years ago this brick building and former schoolhouse of 1893 was for sale and the owners Jon and Sascha didn’t think too much about it. It seems the place is like being in an oasis in the city. “When you sit on the balcony overlooking the courtyard , away from the hustle and bustle of the street , it’s hard to believe that you are in the heart of the vibrant city of Copenhagen. We both work in an industry in which everyday life filled with incessant sounds, voices and colors , so finding a peaceful spot for us was so important.”
The school however was too large. Facilities built for dozens of users did not match to the need of a house for two. Fortunately, soon they came up with the idea of combining family life with social , asking to participate a few friends who shared with them all the repairs and renovation and benefit at the same time. The building was split then into 16 separate apartments ; Sascha and Jon booked a 140- square meter apartment with a 24 -meter longitudinal balcony . “We call our house a luxury community. All of us here know each other for years , we share common interests and similar views on life . As a result , already exceeding the gate from the street starting to feel like home.”
A very inspiring story, isn’t it?
