Villa P, a large family vacation home designed by Norkaer+Poulsen Architects, is located on the small island of Funen across an expanse of ocean separating it from the mainland of Denmark. The house's steeply angled roof and heavy use of wood hearken to the classic cottage designs of the area, but the home is full of modern design quirks that keep it forward-facing as well.

Norkaer+Poulsen Architects' Villa P takes its name from the rough shape of its exterior. The outer wall, roof, and balcony flooring have a thick, bold cross section, and the total shape of this cross section makes a crude 'P' shape (which is inverted or normal depending on whether one is looking from the front or the back of the cottage's exterior.)
