The Village House by Powerhouse Company is a contemporary take on the traditional countryside home concept. Designed as a young family's home-away-from-home, this weekend home is located in the heart of Sjælland, Denmark.

This modernized summer home takes design inspiration from traditional cabin construction and replaces recycled wood logs with sleek and streamlined materials combinations of wood, glass, steel and drywall.

This spacious abode is designed with sustainability in mind thanks to multiple sky-lights and windows that bathe its interior with plenty of natural light. The Village House by Powerhouse Company is made up of a cluster of five wings, each resembling miniature cabins.

The wings fan out at different angles and resemble a hand when observed at an areal view. Designed with a growing family in mind, this roomy summer home features large communal areas as well as private areas that can be inhabited by children when they grow older.
