In the South of The Netherlands we built the Riethoven house. Designed by the owner himself, this house is both a log house and a panel house: the ground floor is a log house, and then the second floor is a panel house, but constructed in such a way that you can not see the difference. No gypsum inside, all pine planks as if it were logs. The panel construction gave us just that little extra flexibility to meet the demands.
The Josephine is a combination of panel and cross laminated timber, or CLT. The walls are traditional panel walls that you will see everywhere nowadays, while the overlay structure is made from CLT, 10 cm massive wood. The inside walls are finished with multiplex which creates an industrial interior. The glass facade is what it is all about. This house is located on the edge of a small village, overlooking farmland the the South-West.
