Back to School

An 1893 schoolhouse in Copenhagen is now a creative retreat for Jon and Sascha, who both work in the music industry. Initially attracted by its architecture, it was the large surrounding property and inner courtyard that finally sold them—it feels very secluded, despite being near the old town centre. When you work with sound every day, silence is a true luxury. More here on Ladny Dom.
