+node – the house in Hiroshima Prefecture

uid japan house 5

This  wooden house designed by Japanese studio UID Architects hovers ten metres above the forest floor and has a hole underneath to let trees grow up inside.

The main body of the building is a long rectangular box with one end anchored to the ground and the other sticking out into the air. A second volume slotted beneath the structure functions as both an extra floor and a lateral support.
