The facade is entirely clad in heart pine on the walls and pitched roofs, providing a homogenous skin that blends in with its surroundings.

Inspiration from architects:

While admitting the high sun above the forested crest, its focal point is the forest floor at the base of hill. A comfortable sitting niche provides the optimal place for relaxation and contemplation.
