Tent-Like Home in the Woods

Tent-Like Home in the Woods

The house is made primarily of timber and measures 1,678 square feet (156 sq m), and features very tall, pointed ceilings in all the rooms. This pointed shape of the roofs is meant to allow more light into the home, while also cutting the cost of heating and cooling. According to the architects it serves to eliminate unnecessary space. To achieve this, they placed the sitting and lying down areas along the walls, as well as cut the upper space diagonally in order to lower the ceiling according to how people move. The result was this tipi-shaped house which only has one third of the volume of a traditional house, without sacrificing comfort and utility.
