Estonian architects KAMP have completed a timber house outside Tallinn that's cranked around an oak tree.

One side of the larch-clad house is single-storey to allow longer periods of sunlight to reach the rear deck.

On the other side of the building, where bedrooms are located, the roof slopes up to create a first-floor room beneath the eaves.

Inside the house, plywood wall surfaces are coated with a smooth covering of clay.

Capital city Tallinn was also the location of our last two architecture stories from Estonia, which were a suspended woodland pathway and a theatre made of straw.

The plot is covered with old oak trees, looking almost like little park. One of these oak trees is combined with the house, inserted to the terrace.

The whole house is made of wood – from the construction frame to the larch siding. The higher part of the roof is also covered with larch siding.

In interior there is no gypsum board used. All inner walls are made of plywood and covered with natural clays. Outer walls and roof contain more insulation wool than normally is provided to achieve better insulation and lower heating costs.

    Wow…the airplane parking was one of the first things I noticed too. Very cool, if you have an airplane. I guess it makes for a nice size garage if you don't:)
