Homes away from home

Imagine walking into a holiday home and it feels like… home. This is exactly what Third.space had in mind when decorating holiday homes in the three Lalandia resorts. Their newest project is the holiday resort Lalandia Søndervig with no less than 440 holiday homes ready to welcome guests in June 2022. The homes can fit anything from 4 persons to 8 persons and vary from 55 m2 to 110 m2 in size.

The colours used in the holiday homes have a deeper meaning than first anticipated, as Third.space got the idea of bringing the colours from outside into the holiday homes. “The tabletop has a light green colour like the leaves on the trees, and the blue cushions on the couch are a symbol of the ocean. The couch itself is cognac-coloured like the brown tones found in the forest. Warm, soft, and relaxing colours are what defines the holiday homes”, Poul Gram-Hansen, Sales Manager in Third.space, says.

The cooperation between Lalandia and Third.space goes way back. Billund and Rødby are both on the list of previous projects Third.space has been helping Lalandia with, and now the time has come to Søndervig. There is a lot of mutual respect between Lalandia and Third.space, which is also why the interior solutions company is willing to walk that extra mile for Lalandia. Despite all challenges that occur during that comprehensive process of furnishing 440 holiday homes, Third.space managed to deliver all homes to the agreed deadline, not as much as a minute over. At one point, Third.space faced the challenge of their lamps being stuck in a container in China, but instead of just waiting for them to arrive, they took action and found a flight that was already flying to Denmark with free space on board for their lamps.

One thing is getting furniture delivered in due time. Mounting lamps, shelves, and hooks in 70 holiday homes in just 10 days is something else. A famous anecdote from the process is ‘the man with the pen’. This man had a huge impact in the final step of the process, where the smaller details of the holiday homes had to be taken care of. “What he did, was to grab his pen and mark exactly where to put lamps and shelves – one holiday home at a time. That way, the craftsmen could easily see where to drill holes without wasting time on measuring”, Poul Gram-Hansen explains. Conclusively, the man with the pen saved a lot of time, and Third.space spent only 10 working days transforming 70 holidays homes from empty houses to complete homes.

Although Third.space was given a task of furnishing the 440 holiday homes, they did not compromise on either quality nor personality. Lalandia Søndervig is now a resort with 440 complete homes inspired by the colours of the nature making you feel home.

Dreamers and doers unite

At CityHub Copenhagen, you can spend the night in a bunkbed without ever seeing or hearing your bunkmate. The innovative sleeping pods layer guests to maximise space and minimise costs. Third.space played an essential part in creating the common areas where travellers can grab anything from a drink with friends at the self-service bar to a nice shower in the decorative, shared bathing and toilet facilities. The result is probably one of the most innovative overnight experiences you will find in Copenhagen, combining the best of hostel life with privacy and comfort.

As soon as you walk in the door at CityHub Copenhagen, it is clear to see that the place was designed by some unusually creative minds. But how do you go from visionary ideas to brick and mortar? For Spacon & X, who are the architects behind CityHub Copenhagen, the answer was Third.space

While Spacon & X dreamed up their ideal designs, Third.space took on the task of doing all of the estimations and calculations necessary to ensure that all ideas were functional and viable, and to find alternative solutions to the ones that were not. And with every single product in the project being custom made, Third.space had their work cut out for them.

After careful preparations, Third.space built everything from toilet facilities to lounge areas, kitchens and office areas. Even though it was their first time building restrooms, the team faced the task head on, and the final result is one that Sales Manager at Third.space, Peter Gissemann, is very proud of today: "This project goes to show how far we can go, when we combine the creative and visionary minds of architects with our vast knowledge of functionality and attainability."

Thanks to the synergetic collaboration between Spacon & X and Third.space, cash-stretching travellers can now enjoy a comfortable and innovative overnight stay at CityHub Copenhagen.

Creating space for you to enjoy life

Your home is your first place. Your work is your second place. Third.space creates your third place. Coined by urban sociologist Ray Oldenburg, the 'third place' term refers to places outside your home or your work where you can have a good time, connect with others and relax.

In 2020, the interior design companies ID Design Project and Interior Direct merged. The merger called for a new name to underline the business purpose: to create comfortable and welcoming spaces. The chosen name, Third.space, carries a clear reference to the 30 year old sociology term both in form and content.

Despite a new name, Third.space continues to serve customers of all sizes with advice and assistance in designing and decorating hotels, holiday resorts, hostels, student accomodations and much more.
