DOMUS VISTA

Domus Vista is a giant, built in 1968-1969, an impressive 102 meters tall, 30 floors and housing 470 apartments. It's the tallest residential building in Denmark, and the second tallest in Scandinavia, only beaten by The Turning Torso in Malmo.

In the early 1970s it housed a hotel fully equipped with living rooms, banquet facilities and a restaurant. It did however shut down.

The building itself is still in use, a small mall, a library and apartments.

The building was designed by Ole Hagen.

      As i promise i came back on the other day to this wonderfull house, this time someone was there and some of the windows where open. A take some photos with this incredible light. And finally explored the rest of the house, it has some really big rooms, each one more beautiful than the other. I also got a lot of new information on the property.
      You can read about the first visit here:
       
       
      Now let's go see the house.
       

      This is the dinning room, In here the family would dine with a wonderfull view of the river and the city on the other side, with their carved fireplace giving them warm.
       This room is really big, around 3 to 3 and a half meter tall.
       


      This is the most beautifull in my opinion. It would be the living room and also a place to entretain guests. It as a incredible fireplace with carved wood and as views to the front of the house and river, unfortunately the floor is full of pieces of chandelier.
       

      This derelict chapel once hosted private prayers, the priest would come from the church every sunday to give it to the count's family.
       
       

      This is the guest room, also very damaged.
       

      This is the entrance hall, it has a wonderfull dome covering it, through this doors already passed princes, dukes, counts, Presidents and industry tycoons.
       

      This stairs lead to the main bedroom, the iron work in beautifull.

      Over the stair a rotten skylight let light shine on the old stairs.
       

      This is the main bedroom, it as a balcony but is too exposed to the street, in here the last true count died 40 years after the monarchy was abolished.
       

      This is the extension that where added to the house in the 30's
       
       
      It's really a wonderfull house, a remainder of a far by gone era.
       
      Hope you enjoyed.

      This mansion was the home of a local noble family that built it in the end of the XVIII Century, the house was renovated around the time of the First World War and is now abandoned for around 20 years. There where some homeless people living in a section of the house some time ago but their gone now.
      I could not find more information on the property but i plan to come back for a more complete exploration and to take more Photos.
       
      This is the Front Facade, there is coat of Arms but i could'nt reach closer to this Facade.
       

      There was a beautiful chapell inside the House but both the cealing and the floor are collapsing.
       

      Some of the furniture is still on the house along with multiple photos and documents.
       

      In the back we can see the real size of the house.
       

      It as a wonderfull view of the city and it's river.
       

      It as wonderfull rooms with carved fireplaces but i didnt had the time to explore the entire house. 
       

      Some photos and paintings and books in the Main Bedroom.
       
      I will come back to take better photos and will publish them in a new topic.

      Campina Youth House
       
       
      Haven't seen this one posted anywhere so I decided to chuck a quick report up on it. I would say this particular location could be described as disused rather than abandoned, as it looked like there was redevelopment work going on when we arrived. Hence why it is so nice and pristine. Anyway, onto a little bit of history I found..
       
      History

      The Youth House was orginally built as a leisure centre in Campina. A city situated roughly around the South East of Romania. It was constructed by local authorites in order to create a space for young people to participate in a range of sporting activities such as: aerobics, matrial arts and boxing. It was also established in order to promote culture and education and the house provided various facilities for the arts. The Youth House hosted a large auditorium to  showcase fairs, exhibitions, conventions, concerts and festivals. 
       
       
      Visit

      Visited with @darbians and Gina on a long weekend trip to Romania. We were driving past and saw what we orginally thought was a hotel and decided to check it out. Finding this place was defintely an unsuspected susprise and I'm very glad we decided to pull over. I really enjoyed photographing this one and I espiecally liked the mosiacs which reminded me of the ones at Buzludzha I had seen the previous year. I hope you enjoy my report!
