Wood logs facade
The wood houses always create warm and elegant atmosphere, they look cozier than the houses made of brick or steel. Wood house made of solid wood stands for versatility, strength and high quality. Have a look at this linear wooden house constructed by Steven Holl who got the inspiration of the close proximity to the studio of the painter Jackson Pollock. This residence may look a bit transparent due to its design. However it is closed at the south side to provide the privacy to the inhabitants while opening up the interior to the bay and the north view of the Atlantic Ocean. Strips of the sunlight get into the house and bend internal area dramatically during the day. Cool house!
