When you think of a wooden home you may think of a quaint cabin in the woods, but thanks to the versatility of the material the contemporary wooden dwelling can be so much more than that.
When it comes to contemporary architecture and design the possibilities are virtually endless; the ingenuity in using an array of building materials and the astonishing creativity of architects' designs allow truly spectacular and original homes to be constructed.
Wood is no exception, so today we're bringing you a list of some of the most wonderful wooden homes we've ever seen.
This beautiful and intricate little wooden dwelling has a more traditional feel to it. It has been designed to accommodate poor weather with a gable roof that extends outwards sheltering the area around the home, as well as a sheltered porch and shutters on the windows.
As a building material wood has a warm, natural quality like no other, and here it has been exploited in the creation of a delightful modern dwelling that blends with the surrounding natural environment. Vast windows cover the building’s tallest wall allowing the home to fill with natural light while providing superb views of the hills outside.
The unconventional, artistic design of this wooden dwelling demands attention. This size of this unique property defies the expectation that a wooden home will be smaller, while the extensive use of glass in the design creates a connection to the outdoors; all around it’s an astonishing piece of architecture.
It may be a smaller wooden home in the woods, but number four on our list defines all conventions. This one of a kind design places a home of peculiar geometric shapes amidst the trees taking wooden home design to new heights.
Inside we find a minimalist, small but comfortable open-plan living space with a large window in front of the bed as well as a skylight above it allowing the occupant to feel close to nature.
Number five on our list takes wooden homes to the next level with its two-story design, and it certainly stands out thanks to its bright red colour.
In the loft of this stunning Lisbon apartment we find a white wooden room constructed with beams that are deliberately crooked and uneven giving them natural, driftwood-like appearance, and instilling the home with rustic charm.
Last on our list is a wonderful wooden home designed around enjoying the outdoors. The home features a large, sheltered patio built into the home’s design as well as a pool on the premises. The rounded edges on the home’s rectangular design make for an eye-catching and unconventional appearance.
