Handsome House XL is constructed almost entirely from cross-laminated timber

The interior features a light-filled and spacious floor plan split into three levels: a basement and two upper floors. The small basement level was constructed with reinforced steel, while the upper levels consist entirely of cross-laminated timber elements. Large glazed surfaces let in natural light filtered by timber slats. The communal spaces, including the dining room, kitchen, and living areas are placed on the first floor and connect with an outdoor patio flanked by the parallel gabled volumes. The bedrooms are located on the topmost floor.
