Chestnut Cabin

  • Kozaka, Shirakawa, Gifu, Japan
  • Collective living and working place for half freelance / half farmer
  • Timber roof-scape on the dispersed volumes reacting to the topography with stone walls and each room's function + comfort.
  • Dialogue between stone and timber, creating not only the tension of materiality, but also the micro spatial quality of heat, light, wind.
