Our selection of modern wood houses includes minimalist designs that focus on clean geometric forms or classic silhouettes re-interpreted in ingenious ways. Some houses boast multiple volumes arranged in compositions that maximize the design’s visual impact while also ensuring the modern structure blends into natural landscapes. Other dwellings feature multiple stories that provide different views of the surroundings. And some houses have one floor and an elongated silhouette, offering a sprawling living space immersed in nature. These designs may look understated from the outside, but they often house striking interiors with glazed walls or glass doors that open rooms to meadows, forests, lake views, or beaches.

When it comes to modern wood houses, architects use the material in different ways. Narrow wood planks installed in a vertical orientation create a beautiful texture. Charred wood adds a bold accent to modern rustic architecture while ensuring the cladding will require minimal to no maintenance. Other houses alternate either different types of wood. Some of them contrast the organic textures of timber with metal or glass elements. All of these designs offer new takes on the classic wooden house concept via contemporary architecture that also celebrates the natural material.
