In terms of typology, Slutterupgaard is a classic Danish farm, consisting of a farmhouse with stables, forming a central farm yard. Slutterupgaard’s 250 m2 farmhouse functions primarily as a single family home, but also has a guest apartment and farm offices. The farmhouse is transilluminated and offers a panoramic view of the North Zealand countryside. The farmhouse is slightly elevated, appearing to float over the landscape. The farm buildings have a strong, graphic expression, their dark facades clad in a sustainable material designed to withstand the Nordic climate.
Today, a private stud farm operates from Slutterupgaard. It has a total equine population of about 20 horses and breeds between five and eight horses a year. The stable building includes 18 large, bright box stalls, each with its own window. The short side of the stud farm’s indoor riding arena is lined with mirrors, and a wide window section on the long side provides a view of the courtyard and stable. A dressage field located between the stable and riding arena creates a cosy courtyard with a view out to the pond and paddocks.
The remaining Slutterupgaards 58 hectares still operates as farming.
