该项目的承包商Setsumasa Kobayashi先生告诉我,他想在山坡北面的树林中找一个简单的地方搭建他两米高的圆顶帐篷,并居住于此。

我安置了两个用120毫米X 120毫米规格的当地落叶松木构成的方盒子,通过在它们之间放置大的木质平台将其连接。由于我不想干预周围景观,我沿着山脉设置了各种楼板平面,用以承办各种活动;他们可以在此坐着休息或在下面储藏柴火,再或就呆在那尽享周围不断变幻的美景。

Mr. Setsumasa Kobayashi, client of this project, told me that he wanted a simple place in the woods where he can set up his 2-meter dome tent by The North Face and live in there.
The site, approximately 5,300 square meters, is located in the mountain in Kawakami Village of Nagano Prefecture. Here I provided a wood deck to set up the 2-meter dome tent, kitchen, storage, bathroom and toilet, shelves for firewood, and a solar panel system.

Basically the client and his wife spend most of their time outside.  Wood deck is their living room, and the 2-meter dome tent is their bedroom and shelter from wind and rain.

I did not intend to design a regular weekend house, and didn’t want comfortable and protected rooms with beautiful views. I was determined to support his clear and powerful vision on the nature, so I eliminated anything that would interfere with his thoughts.

What I created here is a simple and comfortable base for his active outdoor lifestyle in the woods.

Minimum essentials
I placed two boxes of built-up 120mm X 120mm local larch lumber, and connected them by placing large wood decks for the 2-meter dome tent in between. Since I didn’t want to touch the existing landscape, I set various floor levels along the mountainside, and these floors become places for various activities; they can sit and rest there, or they can store firewood underneath, or they can simply stay there and enjoy ever-changing beauty of the surrounding scenery.
All doors are collapsible panels, so when all doors are collapsed, all rooms are totally open-air.  All is made of unfinished larch, and it already started to fade naturally into grey.  In a long course of time, it will eventually dissolve into the woods and return to the earth.

Some parts of this house does not fulfill basic residential requirements such as waterproofing, insulation against weather, and durability.  But in this project I focused on thinking what important things I might lose by trying to achieve all basic standards.
What I needed was to really think about minimum essentials for life in the woods. Naturally they might find some inconvenience, but I believe that people really understand true sense of liberation and freedom under some inconvenient circumstances.
I don’t want architecture to be convenient “tools” which guarantee safe and ordinary lives. I hope that  architecture will be a place where people discover something new, and make innovations in their life styles.
