The Forest Bath by Kyoko Ikuta Architecture

View all 10 Photos

The Forest Bath house provides as a summer escape from the busy world of urban living to a surreal place of relaxation and comfort in Nagano, Japan. Built by Kyoko Ikuta Architecture, the home has a triangular shaped void that serves as an outdoor space where towering trees watch over inhabitants through its slanted views. Windows sit at the base of the house where dwellers can see the forest floor. Rooms at the edge of the house are darker than the center, but are brightened by light that trickles down from the large central skylights.
