Resumé

The aim of this article is to compare different ways of dwelling in second homes.

Since 1991, retired people have been given the right by the Danish government to

convert their second home into a primary dwelling. Through numerous empirical

examples, the consequences of the transformation from one type of dwelling to

another are analysed. Especially the perceptions of nature, social relationships

and everyday life reveal signifi cant changes, with salient impacts on architecture,

gardening and leisure time, that result in a differentiation of the otherwise monofunctional

landscape of second homes in Denmark. From an anthropological point

of view, the transformation from second home to primary home is interesting

because it makes explicit the relationship between dwelling and architecture, in

the sense that when one is changed, the other will most likely follow suit.

Keywords: Second home, dwelling, leisure time, everyday life.
