Laminated Pinewood House by Nordicasa Design & Construction
Architect Jaak Kangro of Nordicasa Design & Construction sent us some amazing photos of his latest architectural endeavor – a gorgeous timber home design located in the Valdelineares ski resort in Spain. Built almost entirely from 165 mm laminated pinewood, this wood clad house boasts a rustic mountain cottage feel both inside and out. But this mountain house isn't without its modern touches, like the tiny peek-a-boo window slots peppering the front facade, and a stone-finished front entrance flanked by windows that offers a small view of what’s inside. The rear face of the home features glass walls that open to the outdoors. Interiors are as wonderfully woody as the exterior, giving each room a country-chic feel. The open-concept main floor is conducive to socializing; you can sit in any area and still have a view of what’s cooking in the kitchen and the living room fireplace and the dining nook. Interestingly, the kitchen features a much-more modern aesthetic, temporarily straying from natural wood to be replaced by contemporary white cabinets, countertops and a horizontal window backsplash.
