This modern architecture looks cool and disjointed for a really good reason...  Located in the forest of Japan, the architecture coexisting with the forest became a key principle for the design team from K2 Design. Following this concept, the designers arranged several parts, which look like a group of small separate houses, in strategic gaps among the trunks and connected them with short passages. The smart design doesn't stop there. The house is also raised off the ground on pillars. This prevents snowdrifts in winter and reduces moisture and heat from the ground penetrating the floors in summer. We would live here, would you?! Have a great weekend everyone! Images: Visuall

"I'm looking for housing that is affordable, and modern. I know there must be innovative, well-designed housing out there. I just can't seem to find it!" —Tracey R., from the Dwell discussion board
