Tree House in the City


I have found yet another tree house that I love.  "Tree House" by Mount Fuji Architects Studio is an home squeezed between other homes in Japan.  The wooden arches gradually rise around a central axis to create a emphasis on height rather than width in this small space.  The space is broken up into four parts, each part having a different height and amount of natural light dependent on function.  For example, the dining room has a higher height with more light, while the bedrooms have lower ceilings with less light. 


"It is more suitable to extend the volume vertically rather than horizontally. Similar reason can be found in the nature that a tree enclosed by other tall trees in a deep forest tends to have vertical directivity for its growth."
