Rainforest Retreat in 150 Best New Eco Home Ideas
This small dwelling provides its occupant with a retreat to call home for short stays, as well as an art studio in which to work in a quiet environment. The retreat, carefully nestled among tall trees, enjoys views that stretch from the tree crowns and dark mossy undergrowth to long vistas of the Pacific Ocean. The client’s wishes for simplicity in program, gentle exterior appearance, small footprint, and abundant natural light set the guidelines for an open sculptural form. Great effort was put into minimizing the building’s impact on the site, resulting in a long, yet slim, structure.
