This modern forest house fuses elements of contemporary design and rustic wood-paneling together. The cozy Danish abode is rectangular in shape and has impressive views of the surrounding forestry.

Its exterior is visually striking, made from dark wood in a distinct textured pattern. The heavy use of wood throughout the modern forest home's interior and exterior is a tribute it pays to its surroundings. The home is also positioned in a unique diagonal shape to maximize the entrance of natural light. A large, almost wall-sized window and door sits beside the dinning area, allowing diners to bring some of the outdoors to the inside.

The homeowners wanted to also position the home away from nearby businesses and chose a location that was entirely surrounded by trees. The luxurious house is used to host large dinner parties, providing ample space while remaining intimate.
