5 Geometric Home Designs With Super Sophisticated Wooden Architecture


We find these 5 geometric house designs fascinating. Despite the technical-sounding name, they are ergonomic, beautiful and unexpected. It takes skill and original thinking to create such sophisticated designs. And all of them are made of wood, which makes them even more attractive. Check out these homes and let us know if you agree with our assessment.

The design of the parallelogram

We love this home design. The Cascade Rooms all share the same covered terrace with a gazebo-style roof and all have Baltic Sea views. This modern Swedish summer cottage may appear triangular in shape at first, but it actually has a parallelogram geometry – see the architectural plan below. The geometry of the plan was dictated by the specifics of the site – the house had to be embedded in the flat surface between two mountain rocks and have enough sunlight and, of course, the beautiful sea views. The zigzag layout of the rooms in quincunx also creates a series of outer squares (voids in the overall parallelogram) sheltered from strong winds.

Designed by Tham & Videgard Hansson Arkitekter, the house is located among the islands near Stockholm, Sweden, and follows the popular Nordic trend of dark wood cladding. The small bedrooms placed at the back, with the social areas overlooking the sea.


This Scandinavian cottage is a light wood and glass construction.


The next design below follows a somewhat similar concept with the idea of ​​extending certain parts of the house to form an enclosed space, in both cases the terrace.

Corner geometry

This next house (below) is easily one of the most beautiful wooden designs we’ve seen, and it’s named after its geometric shape – the Wedge. This Finnish lake house, compact and made of wood, is placed at the edge of the water. But its best feature has to be the way the house extends into the rocky hillside. It’s modern, bold and aesthetic. When untreated wood turns gray, it echoes the color of rocks. This modern house on the rocks is totally awesome, actually. www.hlp.fi.


I’m sure I’m not the only one who is fascinated by this simple yet stunning geometric shape. I love how the wedge shape takes you down the mountain and into the water.


When you are on this bridge, you feel like you are outside, but you are also inside the walls and you feel “protected”. And that’s why people build houses – to feel protected. A good idea, especially if you have children.


The built-in fireplace is integrated directly into the deck and can be closed in a hidden and discreet way. The weathered gray coating is reminiscent of the driftwood found in abundance on northern lakes.


But enough with sharp objects.

The ring against the circle

This neighboring house (Villa Nyberg below) is a donut-shaped wooden cottage, with a hole in the middle. Yes, there is a real opening in the center, starting from the ground floor. This is an amazing sustainable design of a lake house located in Sweden. It’s not a circle it’s a ring, with all interior rooms positioned across the width of the ring, and radially to the circular interior courtyard in the center which contains a ladder leading to the rooftop observation deck. wow. At least three design goals were achieved with this unusual architecture: to reduce wall area, to avoid cold or hot spots (essentially an even air temperature distribution), and to create a connected community environment. kjellgrenkaminsky.se.


The floor plan is designed according to the movement of the sun during the day and the horizontal roof is covered with solar panels. This tiny house produces enough energy to be classified as a passive solar house. According to the architect: “With a lot of technical skill and courage, we managed to create a building that many thought was impossible – a round passive house with a hole!” What a fascinating design! Although it has been adapted to the needs of the owners, this design is essentially a prefabricated wooden house, and the intention of the architect is to make this sustainable construction technique accessible to everyone.


futuristic 3d geometry

Despite its earthy, wood-clad appearance (see below), this is a totally futuristic, high-tech home design inside and out. Not only was the intention here to mimic the surrounding dunes and allow for the best sea views, but also to make the house energy sustainable. And the turtle roof with glazing is an amazing architectural detail in itself. The geometry of the roof is so 3D that it’s hard to grasp right away how it’s designed. And notice how on one side the roof actually becomes a wall, connected to the bridge. Is it a roof or a wall?
The interiors are even more fascinating – they are both futuristic and comfortable. There are many interior architectural elements that seem to intertwine but this is only an illusion. I can only imagine what it is like to live in this amazing house.
It’s a small wooden house but it has many cool elements, like the futuristic central fireplace, the partially suspended staircase, the modern hanging chairs, the two lofts (not one but two lofts on different levels), and of course , the seating area overlooking the sea through a huge glass wall. BTW, the geometry of this wall alone is worth the excitement.
Few lines are horizontal, vertical or even in this house profile, not even in the window frames… but the overall harmony is undeniable. marckoehler.nl.


The facing boards pass through the glass and continue uninterrupted forming the decorative pattern. The unevenly distributed “cutouts” look like they were cut on the CNC machine, they are so complex geometrically. But the look is so aesthetic. This window frame was probably custom made to fit a specific number of boards across its width. wow!


Designs like these are only possible with sophisticated computer help, and now I understand what they mean when they say virtual reality tools will be used by architects from now on. You need to be virtually inside the structure to decide on the best locations for floors and walls and to determine where they should intersect. And how many sectional view drawings did it take to specify every dimension, to pre-cut the wood to build this house.


Of course, I understand that today’s CAD systems allow you to see how all the planes intersect and will size it for you accordingly…but you still have to pick the base points yourself, and that’s hard to do when there are only a few flat straight lines in the whole structure. I can assume this house was pre-fab and pre-assembled in a warehouse before being built on the actual site. It could have been done the same way they do with log homes when the logs are each cut in their place, assembled, labeled, then disassembled, delivered separately, and reassembled according to their labeling.


And did we mention that this modern wooden turtle-roofed chalet is heated with biofuel.

octagon design

There is always this dilemma: how to build a house that offers the best ocean views and is compact and comfortable to live in. This next home design (below) found the solution – ranch-style architecture built around an octagonal deck. This natural wood house is located on the Pacific Ocean near San Francisco. tgharchitects.com.


We love the octagonal shape, the simple Japanese style.


And there’s a cool breakfast nook and window nook in the bedroom – lots of thoughtful touches. You don’t have to be a big house to have great features!
