A House with Scrap Wood Walls in Israel

Here is a creative way to use scrap wood for the home.

Scrap wood? Well, for most of us it is nothing but something that belongs to the trash especially if there are already rotten parts but for creative people, scrap wood is actually an opportunity to create something unique, beautiful and useful. In truth, there are so many things that you can make using scrap wood that range from a wall decor and even storage boxes. You can even make furniture like a table using scrap wood. But for this home that we will feature today, it uses scrap wood in a surprisingly creative manner.

A home in Hofit, Israel is designed by Brahma-Architects. It features walls that are covered in a variety of scrap wood pieces but these were mainly contained to the area around the home’s art studio. Well if you come to think of it, using scrap wood for the walls of the art studio seems appropriate because of the artistic flair these walls are exhibiting. With that, the walls of the studio also became an artistic statement for the house. I know you are curious on how they used it and how it looked like after it was used for the area. Take a look at the home below.
