Clear and subtle dream house in the forest

This unbelievably pure forest home was designed by The Japanese Studio Curiosity.

The clear and abstract volume, adapted to the slope of the ground, unifies roof and wall envelope in a modest, yet very contemporary and precise shape. The house is approached and crossed by a bridge of dark wood board, a texture which is repeated on the siding of the angular wall and the window veneers.

In spite of the compact and simple shape, the residence, called house C2 Yamanashi, reveals a 6 m ceiling room upon entrance, an atrium opening to the forest, serviced by a salon kitchen. The rather conventionally furnished inner spaces are refreshed by subtle lighting and long windows allowing for the transition of outside light from one hour to another.
