Mjölk Architekti built the Carbon House for a couple named Katka and Honza, their three sons, and their pets. “Katka and Honza are cooking all the time,” write the architects. “So they decided to burn their new house as well—but not from ground to top. Just only all around.” The vertical timber planks were unevenly charred to create a variegated appearance.

Inside, the ground floor comprises an open-plan living area, kitchen, and dining space; a separated study is tucked behind a wood burning stove. Three bedrooms are located on the second floor. Drenched in natural light, the minimalist interior features whitewashed walls and exposed timber ceiling beams that reinforce the home’s rustic character. The Carbon House was also designed with an attached garden and vegetable patch.
