This single family home is hidden in the trees of a dense forest. The wild surrounding nature is tamed in an internal courtyard and further cultivated inside a south facing orangerie. The orientation and massing are sculpted to maximize sunlight. The structure is made from Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) clad with a rainscreen system more commonly seen in a commercial building. This home aims to be a maintenance free family fortress in the woods.
