forest bath

japanese architects kyoko ikuta architecture laboratory (kyoko ikuta) and ozeki architects & associates
(katsuyuki ozeki) have sent us images of 'forest bath', a single-storey summer home in nagano, japan.
situated on a flat site which does not have the vantage point for sweeping views, the design carves out 
a triangular plane into the structure's form to extend the eyes obliquely up towards the sky.
