The Wooden Concrete House is distinctly made up of two types of material: wood and concrete, as the name so aptly suggests. The design was done by Nestor Sandbank Architecture, and the house is located in Israel.

When looking at the abode from both the front and the back, the main material used seems to be wood. However, upon closer inspection it's clear that the concrete is mingled throughout, adding an industrial aesthetic to the structure. The contrasting items used for building is what makes this piece of work so modern and fascinating. On the one hand, it exudes an industrial look, but the wood gives the house a cabin-like feel. It's opulence is added to even more on the inside, which features open spaces and luxurious furniture.
