- Arne Jacobsen
The Soholm Row Houses are built at Bellevue Beach, and Jacobsen himself purchased one of the Soholm I units for use, making the interior a place of work. The meeting room on the first floor has storage built into all the walls, except the window area, which makes an alcove. This storage, which can be used from inside the alcove, is made as a document shelf. As its door opens away from the window to prevent blocking the sunlight when they look for some documents.
