A traditional and modern northern retreat

When you think about it, the Danish islands aren’t necessarily the first choice that comes to mind for the location of a holiday house. But if it’s yours, it’s always good to know the processes or materials that were traditionally used to build local houses. You’d also probably be surprised to learn that seaweed can be used as insulation. By using seaweed, you’d not only respect the traditional heritage of Læsø, but you would also be very modern and sustainable since it’s an eco-friendly material. Once you understand how to ensure that your house resists the rough weather conditions of the area, you can finish by thinking about other ways to design your northern retreat. How about using prefabricated building modules? You would thus find the key to modern architecture: be green and respect traditional heritage while still using modern technology!
