This is a plan of house with observatory which dwellers can take a view and cultivate surroundings approx. 3300㎡ forest, planned in Gotemba Shizuoka Japan. A client who has grand scaled forest wants to convey such environment for after ages by living here and maintaining it continuously. In this case, the house is regarded as not only space for living but a base of “Land watcher” who observe and cultivate the forest. Its organization looks like momentary different leveled hula-hoops, and its viewing decks pass through the trees. It’s a place where people can look around raise whole of forest as environment. By putting architecture of physical environment, we think about possibility to sublimate complementary relationship between human and forest to sustainable relationship with radicating that relation as custom and culture.
