To achieve this, the functions of the home are divided into four pavilions: sleeping, living, auto / storage, and working / recreation. The pavilions, clad with charred wood siding, are linked with a connector hall clad in white panels. This change in materials, while moving between daily routines, provides a heighten awareness of transition, allowing time to connect back to the landscape which weaves in and out between the pavilions of the home. The experience of the crafted site and natural forest are amplified.
