House W, designed by Peter Ruge Architekten is a detached dacha for a German-Russian family, nestled in the countryside of Oberhavel, Germany 

Peter Ruge Architekten have designed this delightful little wooden dacha for a family of musicians, set in fairy tale woodland. 

Located 75km north of Berlin, in the beautiful countryside of Brandenburg, the wooden cottage is a home from home for the family. Surrounded by lakes and forests, its location is a source of inspiration and contemplation. The one-story wooden cabin is set on a large 6,500 sq m site. Inside it has a spacious living and dining area for getting the family together in beautiful surroundings. 

The building has a deep connection with the imposing landscape: large windows open up the building, and a wooden porch overlooks a natural garden. The low-cost wood construction and the silver-turning larch cladding have been chosen to emphasise renewable primary products and to harmonise with its natural surroundings. 

The 2015 WAN Wood in Architecture Award is now open for entries.
