A family in Thailand planted a small forest in their backyard and built their home to adapt to the trees without disturbing them. Studio Miti designed the Forest House as a cluster of four structures interconnected with wooden terraces and walkways, for the ultimate fantasy treetop dream home.
Architect’s measured the space between the trees to determine how large the home could be. In order to provide enough living spaces, the home had to be divided into multiple volumes. The house brings together architecture and nature by creating a balance between the two. The main idea was to build around existing trees and offer different views of the lush surroundings.
The new structures were placed on a cross-shaped layout and include a terrace, hallway, living area, bedroom and bathroom. All were made using local building techniques to have the least impact possible on the environment.
