These timber-framed houses make shapely statements in their natural settings.
Firm: Studio Rinaldi
Site: Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.
Standout: The apartment in the Dolomites mixes traditional and contemporary elements, such as custom stools by the firm that riff on the airy structure’s original fir beams—previously hidden behind a drop ceiling.
Firm: i29 Interior Architects and Chris Collaris Architects
Site: Vinkeveen, the Netherlands.
Standout: Inside a quartet of interconnected black-stained pine volumes is a contrasting palette of stark white, natural oak, and polished concrete—a dark/light duality epitomized by the clean-lined kitchen.
Firm: Stefan Hitthaler Architektur
Site: Bruneck, Italy.
Standout: The original 1970s design by Austrian architect Josef Lackner informed SHA’s eco-forward renovation of the angular larch house, including the addition of a cantilevered terrace.
