Architecture studio Vandkunsten designed The Modern Seaweed House, a preservation project initiated by non-profit organization Realdania Byg.

This 100 square meter beautiful holiday house fit for two families is located in the Danish island Læsø.

The seaweed cladding has been stuffed into bolsters made of net knitted in strong wool. This traditional method of insulation is characteristic for the local architecture of island.
