The Geometric Forest

This house can be seen as a geometric forest. Combining a raw wood in its most natural form and an irregular lattice, it produces a loss of reference. The breeze crosses the voids of the structure, the summer sun is filtered by this mesh; between nature and artifice. The space is both delicately protected and completely open. Climbing the structure, you can reach the upper part of the house to the sky terrace, a real place of refuge. Moving around the house is like climbing a tree. Meshes, openings of the structure can become a shelf, a place where to deposit his plants. A dwelling can be revisited in a space of possibilities and tips to explore, a space where the elements, such as wind and sun, invite themselves, orchestrating softness and ease. The Geometric Forest will be a totally new and primitive living space.
