Canopy House

In a forest, there are two ways of looking: a horizontal one, clipping through the tree trunks, and a vertical one, directed towards the leafy crowns. The forest could be understood as a vast natural roof that filters sunlight though its leaves. The more we move away from the ground, the greater the chance of capturing this. As an artifact the house rises off the ground plane, seeking the treetops and the sum. The pronounced slanting of the rood reinforces this decision. Inside, the views look towards the horizon and the top of the tress, so that every room enjoys these two ways of looking that co-exist in the forest.
