Shell house designed by Kotaro Ide of Artechnic

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

The project is a house named shell house located in a dense forest. The curving of the outer roof as well as the wall itself is very contrasting with the setting backdrop.
The project name is taken because the curved forms synonymous with the outer shell of a snail or sea-faring crustacean stand on a plinth of wood creating the illusion that the form floats above the forest bed. (from world architecture news)
simple yet aesthetic outlook shiny at night. The house appears to be an ideal private residence as it hides in the lush of trees.
