This interesting house made of wood, was designed by the architects of H Arquitectes and built in the suburbs of Barcelona. The architects sought to create a project that would be minimally impacted on the environment, would have beautiful views of surrounding countryside, and would also be made from natural and completely safe materials. As a result, Casa 205 blends so well with the surrounding landscape that it looks like a natural extension. The house was build on a natural rocky platform, so it was important to reduce weight of construction and the laminated wood was an optimal solution. The interiors, as well as the facade, are fully decorated with wood that even looks a bit unusual for the modern trends.
