'Forest House' Hugged by Trees: Chris Tate Architecture
Inhabitants of this house constantly feel as if they belong to the wilds of the jungle, the grand outlook of which is visible from the house's windows. The house itself is literally enveloped by the branches of massive and giant Puriri trees. But this does not prevent people from enjoying a warm home atmosphere. The ‘Forest house’ is a project of studio Chris Tate Architecture, located in Auckland New Zealand. The construction is rather simple, but flavor is created by the beauty of the surrounding nature. The house, framed by floor to ceiling glass walls, has a flat roof and cozy home decor. The furnishings, materials selection and color pallet successfully combines with a wild nature.
