Architects and designers use wood for construction because of its infinite applications for interior and exterior design. At present, new planning criteria for housing means that distinctive and ethical buildings can be constructed using a great variety of woods, including recycled. Considered one of the best building materials due to its versatility and thermo-acoustic insulating properties, wood also has many other advantages like strong ecological characteristics and a warm, bright appearance.

This book is a compilation of different construction types: second homes; prefabricated houses; cabins; shelters; child care centres; cafes, and more, which combine traditional design with various contemporary styles. Examples from Canada, Central Europe, the Mediterranean and Northern Europe and Asia are shown in large format images and drawings, along with explanatory texts focussed on the use of wood.
