A total plywood house. Just imagine the wood smell inside. : )
The new facade is cladded in plywood, coated in black pine tar just like the traditional way of preserving wooden boats. The roof is coated in simple tar paper and has thin plywood eaves with integrated aluminum gutters, coated in black. The interior is all in natural pine and where plywood is used for both cladding and construction.

There’s two houses always popping in my mind these days. And for a reason I don’t know, both are named “House K”…, but are not designed by the same architects… and are not talking the same language either. The first one is by Yoshichika Takagi + Sekkei-Sha and is located in Sapporo, Japan (2010). It’s a house filled up with smaller houses, if I can say. The second one (2005), covered by black painted plywood, is by Tham & Videgärd Arkitekter, and is located in Stocksund, Stockholm, Sweden. What I like here is the materiality of the façades, and the window composition.
