Kofunaki House – a unique house, designed by specialists from the Japanese architectural studio ALTS design office within the eco-village in Shiga (Japan). The forest in the center of the living space is designed to return the inhabitants of the house to its roots.
The abundance of wood against a background of white walls and ceilings, transforming the boundaries of dwelling in the air, as well as gravel, concrete, and live plants create a natural eco-environment.
