This recently completed project by Paul de Ruiter Architects takes a natural settings and combines it with modern features. The base the house looks like it was physically molded from the earth, when in fact it has been constructed with wooden beams. Shaped to take the forms of a circle, this support platform holds a house that resembles a box. Large square block shaped windows allow inhabitants as well as outsiders to gaze freely. Each room in the house is encased in glass. The few walls that are present are usually made of wood. A fireplace appears in the center of a square, wooden column, also closed in by glass. Strangely enough, the interior also provides for comfortable living.
