This house blends right into the little nature present in the garden, Despite the use of straight lines and hard glass. By using douglas pine to cover the roof and walls, the house changes colour with the garden during the seasons.
The challenge was to create an indoor and outdoor space on a location that is dominated by a couple of ash trees, above as well as below the ground. Because of the rooted ground a full foundation was not possible. We designed a wedge shaped plan that offers a maximum of space without damaging the trees or their roots. The glass provides depth and reflection in a further camouflaged house.
