Marianne Brandi and Keld Mikkelsen greet visitors to their recently refurbished home in Hellerup, a suburb located just outside Copenhagen. n 2008, when Marianne Brandi and Keld Mikkelsen purchased a late-19th-century residence in Hellerup, an oceanside suburb just outside Copenhagen, the property was in need of a total overhaul.
