Very creative new home by Japanese Architect UID Architects looks to arachnids and the forests to design a wood-clad residence with unique personal space terraces according to a new article from Treehugger.com.
“Spider House is a striking and uniquely composed family residence in Fukuyama. It is mainly characterized by its covered spiderweb-shaped structure/roof that extends down from the top section of the supporting columns, creating a centripetal single-living space. This skeleton becomes the main layout, providing a large open plan for the residents.”
There is a warmth and a playfulness here, thanks to the careful thought behind material (wood) use, and the bold statement of a tall form, sheltering a family under one roof.
