PRIMITIVE FUTURE  

          

COMPETITION ENTRY        HOUSE IN FOREST 2020       

 

 

Inspired by the idea of creating a light and minimal presence in a forest, the inhabitable roof concept was developed. The primitive concept of architecture was to create shelter, and the roof is the definitive form of it. The lightness of the design was achieved by using six slender 5 3/8” x 16” CLT columns. The result is a structure that blends itself within the forest. The programs weave and generate a fluid transition from inside to outside space in the design. The structure is designed to be prefabricated and assembled on-site for minimal obstruction to the forest.
