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. 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.
