Inspired by shapes of mushrooms and forest funghi, this structure does not seek to impose on the forest but to be a part of it. It treads lightly, taking up little space on the ground, and opens up at the top to admit the sun and trees.
Rather than being visually static, the construction gives the feeeling of growth and tension; when inside the structure, one can appreciate the continuous creeping movement of all the life around. The ground space can be used for cooking and shelter, and the space above for sleeping and watching the tree-tops.
The structure is steam-bent pine, and the cladding is thin weather-treated ply-wood sheets, the structure sits on a trench foundation.
