Honka Houses: Only the Best Wood Will Do
Exceptional architectural masterpieces, Honka houses respect both your health and health of Mother Nature
A residential house on the French coast is an excellent example of the structural possibilities of the Honka Fusion concept. The beautiful cubic architecture combines wood, large glass surfaces and stone in a maritime environment. A piece of exceptional log architecture, this house consists of three cubic parts: the first has the living room and kitchen, the second the bedrooms.
The third cube with the staircase rises up from the ground floor between the other two. The main entrance and the utility room are also located here. Under the house, which stands on pillars on a slope, there is also room for a double carport. The first Honka Fusion house has also been built in England. This house is exceptional in many ways. Firstly, it looks modern compared to other houses. Secondly, it is made of logs.
Inside the house delivers all the eco credentials, while the exterior can be fashioned according to personal taste by using various materials, in this case, timber cladding. Although the house does not look like a log home from the outside, the logs were left visible inside. Lime paint was used to turn the logs a white shade, to make the wood pattern discernible through the paint.
The house was named ‘Lagom’ after the Swedish philosophy meaning balance, moderation, having just the right amount of something. Another Honka beach house project is the elegant house in Bretagne. Inspired by the seaside environments, the architecture is a harmonious combination of classic shapes and modern, minimalistic details.
The architecture of this house is contemporary and traditional at the same time. The house is built with Honka Fusion log and exterior insulation, cladding is Finnish pine stained pearl grey. The floor area of 168 square meters has been functionally divided into three modules.
The master bedroom is located in one wing and guest room in the other end of the house. The spacious, open kitchen and loft area form the heart of the house. Sliding doors extend the living area to large patio, where sunlight can be enjoyed through the day. Kommodori series of Honka holiday homes is also charactarized by simple Scandinavian architecture and feature a glazed wall to take advantage of the views beyond.
What better than to sit overlooking the sea, or across open countryside and at the same time know that the building you are viewing this from is keeping you healthy, naturally?
