Day Night House

The house is an insert in the forest floor, its roof, a wooden platform on the ground. Design as a day-night house. The home is a complete entity submerged in the earth. Two bedrooms, living and dining with links to underground courtyards and gardens. During the day the platform lift as eye lids and allow the sun light and space to invade the interior, thus connecting each room individually to the forest above an ant’s view of its ecology and atmosphere. At night the eye lids close and the house sleeps, snug and entirely oblivious to the forest dark above.

Total Built-up area: 990 sq. Ft.
