History, culture and exciting events

Bakkekammen 45

Bakkekammen 45 is Denmark's only interior museum for the movement Bedre Byggeskik. The museum is a former private home, located 10 minutes walk from Holbæk station. The house is the architect Marius Pedersen's own home in a residential area close to the water. 
Marius Pedersen was behind 9 more houses on Bakkekammen, several other houses in Holbæk and several hundred in the rest of Denmark. He was one of the banner bearers behind the Better Building Practices movement. Bakkekammen 45 is very special because the interior has been preserved, as it looked at the architect's death in 1965.
The museum is only open for booked tours last Sunday of each month. Book a tour here - no later than the Thursday before the tour.

You can experience that

Both from the outside and inside the house's cozy living rooms, you can experience the essence of Better Building Practice: Harmony, symmetry and quality expressed through solid craftsmanship. 
Watch the short intro to Bakkekammen 45 on YouTube. As the artist Bjørn Nørgaard puts it in the video; we learn from the movement 'to circumvent resources with greater care'. Precisely the approach to good, durable materials makes Better Building Practice highly topical to this day.
On www.bakkekammen45.dk you can go even more in depth with the house and the movement Better Building Practice.
