Good wood – the beautifully put together ‘Llano Retreat’ by the Llano river in Texas. High ceilings accentuate the vast space and give a super cool and airy feel to the place.

Good wood – Australian firm MRTN Architects designed this stunner in the wilds of Australia. The brief for The ‘Nulla Vale House’ was simple structures, almost primitive, that feel like they’re part of the landscape. Think they met the brief in style.
