The site of this project offers an awesome prized vantage point onto three locally celebrated landscapes.

Each point in this building is oriented towards one of the three landscapes beyond. The plan’s three prongs extend in between the existing trees precisely, to preserve each beautiful oak tree carefully. The building of the house is also constructed on still stilts in order to avoid some severing tree roots. The construction is also dominated in wood materials.

In order to minimize waste and cut costs, the building is designed based on standard-sized, off–the–shelf sheet materials. It is a kind of essential strategy that can complement the building construction even with a tiny budget. This strategy is also can be applied for the people who want to build a simple house that used as a retreat far from a busy city.
