KiNoKan is Japanese for tree trunk, which also forms the basis for the design. This house by François Primault architecte DPLG resembles a 'lying tree trunk' in the forest. The cladding, or the bark, consists of Zwarthout l Shou Sugi Ban. The inside contains brighter Douglas wood. Nature, the seasons, the trees and the leaves form the centre of this location. 'It is a space where time stops', according to the residents.
