The Stockholm-based design studio Kolman Boye Architects recently used wooden offcuts for the facade of this chic weekend retreat in Lillesand, Norway. The upcycled material was sourced from Danish flooring brand Dinesen which “has a large volume of leftover wood available for use.” This project is a great example of how designers are working across industries to limit their impact on the environment and use up all possible materials and scraps.
The wooden offcut facade is uniform, interesting, and visually pleasing. Kolman Boye Architects relied on oak offcuts for the house which has a timber structure. These wooden offcuts adorn both the exterior and the roof. Because of the innovative and conscious use of materials, the studio’s project has been playfully nicknamed ‘the house of offcuts.’
