(DK) Stengaard’ is the danish word for ‘Stone-Yard’ and the ‘aa’ is another way of writing the ‘å’. This website presents this farmstead in northern Denmark, its history, its land and natural enviroment, the buildings, and shows drawings and photos from the inside. You can find all relevant information listed on these pages. We wish you a pleasant stay.

Stengaarden

(DK) The Stengård is a farmstead with three u-formed buildings; two living homes and one empty stable. The main house was, together with the freestanding guest house, renovated from the bottom up in 1990 and both homes are fully equipped today. The stable is partly renovated and can be build up further for any specific usage. Our goal was to leave the beautiful old stone-walls of the Stengård, but rebuild the entire interior with modern material, isolating windows, natural joists, and wooden floors, thus keeping the historic architecture and environment.

Historie

(DK) The Stengård has an over 100 year old story: It was in the year 1889, when a swedish stonecutter settled down in northern Denmark. Since there was recession and high unemployment back in Sweden, he was able to find work on Livø, a small island not far from the eastcoast of the Limfjord. Thus, it happened that, without work, the Swede would choose the most beautiful place along the coastline, high above the Limfjord with a stunning view of over 500 km Fjord landscape, to build his own farmstead by hand; the Stengård.

De Omgivelser

(DK) Der Stengård ist ein Bauernhof in drei Längen mit zwei Wohnhäusern und einem jetzt leerstehenden Stall. Das Hauptwohnhaus wurde zusammen mit dem freistehenden Gästehaus 1990 total grundrenoviert und beide Häuser sind heute voll eingerichtet.

Der Stall ist teilrenoviert und kann zu jedwedem Zweck weiter ausgebaut werden. Das Stallgebäude hat ein neues Dach. Unser Ziel war es, die alten Steinmauern des Stengårdens zu bewahren und sonst von Grund auf das Innere unter ökologischen Gesichtspunkten zu renovieren.

Tegnestue

(DK) Mogens Irgens Pagerman malt und zeichnet seit er denken kann. Schon sein Vater war Grafiker, wie auch seine Schwester Berit. Ausgebildet wurden alle drei an der Kunsthandwerkerschule in Kopenhagen. Und alle drei haben viele Jahre neben ihrer privaten künstlerischen Tätigkeit im Verlagshaus Gutenberghus in Kopenhagen ihren Lebensunterhalt verdient. Bis Mogens in den Siebzigern seine Natur, sein Licht und seinen Lebenshintergrund in der rauen nordjütländischen Landschaft und auf dem Stengaarden fand.
