Hut on Stilts Nozomi Nakabayashi
The project is a small timber structure in a small woodland in Dorset. Nozomi has worked as the designer, contractor and the maker of the project.
The house provides a small magical get away space to spend the night, to ponder and to inspire ideas for the client, who is a writer. The building materials include, cork as insulation and exposed wall cladding, locally sourced Western Red Cedar cladding, Douglas fir primary structure and reclaimed glazing and telegraph poles as the base structure. Interior is finished with birch plywood floor and wall, lime rendered walls and hessian fabric ceiling.
