Villa Wood in Copenhagen, Denmark, is a modern wooden house that is a perfect example of how to live and build sustainably. Designed by Nord Architects in 2019, this ‘living laboratory’ of modern and sustainable building types aims to have a low climate footprint, but maximum impact on life quality and a healthy indoor climate.
With CLT elements in mass-timber, Villa Wood can be customized to meet the needs of different families with varying living patterns and preferences. This house is also designed for disassembly, so all parts are potentially destined for reuse.
La Cadrée Perchée, designed by L’Empreinte Design Architecture in 2022, is a modern and sustainable house located in Morin-Heights, Canada.

With generous windows and a low-profile kitchen, the house offers sublime views of the surrounding forest and Lac Franc. The raw woodwork and concrete floors give the house an inviting, cozy atmosphere, and the two terraces offer an enhanced indoor-outdoor experience.
La Cadrée Perchée provides an ideal escape from city life, perfect for those seeking a connection with nature and a haven for relaxation.
