Constructed from wood both inside and out, the interior of the hut “is defined by a complex, curvilinear and visible wood structure” that leads to the walls and creates intimacy “pockets.” Embedded into the hillside like a mountain goat’s hooves, the “cantilevering structure grows out of the hill like a fallen tree with three main branches creating a symbiosis with the landscape.”
