Description of "Lille Fejringhus”- Denmark

A work of art - A sculpture - A philosophy - An architectural masterpiece - Framework for a lifestyle

A very small village with just a few houses was called FEJRING – probably derived from a Norwegian word. Translated into English it is Celebration. Then in English “Little Celebration House”. It is built by artist and designer Asbjorn Lonvig for his family and work - in state of the art materials - without regard to costs. Asbjorn Lonvig has chosen to enjoy his otium after for three decades having been practicing his artistic and design work in "Lille Fejringhus" and achieving more than he might respect. Exhibited at museums around the world - as the highlight was the world's most prestigious art museum Museum of Modern Art in New York and he has designed for Bang & Olufsen's, at a time the company still was a world brand.

You buy a feeling. You encounter the unique atmosphere already in the entrance area with a view of a meter-high room with windows in the ridge line and from the ceiling-to-floor windows in the gable. Spiritual and uplifted as you enter a Danish village church, where the organ plays Strawberry Fields Forever. When you walk around the house, you feel like an adventure journey in architectural details.
Insight you observe several lighting, water-cut walls with exquisite art etc. Where Poul Henningsen, Børge Mogensen, Arne Jacobsen, Piet Hein, H. J. Wegner and other glitteratis. With calm and filled with joy, you feel an urge to sit down and and just feeling the atmosphere of the rooms. Ready to embrace your life - with colorful simplicity.

Eva Redekop, Journalist at Berlinske Tidende, Danish major newspaper, visited the house and wrote: "In the twilight seen from the garden, it looks like a ship rushing forward out of the dream blue nothing that carries sparkling ladies and dark, gallant men with movie star stature rolling with burning passion in the crystal-lit lounges without sweating. If you only look at the low white sleep flew with the small windows, one thinks of the Mediterranean, and for a moment you sit with your back against the sun-drenched wall, and breathe the exciting aromas of the air. But if you look at the house in the sharp Danish December light and in a completely sober state, then you see it as one of these modern churches, yes, right in the middle of the brown-knotted, newly developed area in Hedensted near Vejle ”

Lille Fejringhus” is located at the end of Fejringhusvej in Fejring (near Hedensted) out to large park-like permanent open space with bridge over Tange Creek, small forest area and towards SE path system through the beautiful Tange Creek Valley area ending at Lille Dalby and the Hedensted Golf Club's driving range, the Golf Pay & Play full rated 9 hole course, and the main 18 hole course.

Warm up

Contacts are centrally controlled pushbuttons, a total of 20 spot lamps in ceilings distributed across all rooms, and in the "knight hall" indirect light, spot spotlights pointed up the ceiling with 35 strong spots. However pretty expensive.
Outdoor lighting is LP quartz moon and Mogens Hansen as well as in the driveway Asbjorn Lonvig's own lamp design.
