Tipi tent wooden Japanese architect Niroshi Nakamura is full of surprises
What looks like a little camping, in the middle of the forest, and yet it is not? The answer is: a unique wooden house, designed and built by the Japanese architect Niroshi Nakamura and his Studio NAPs.
Tipi tent as Wohnhaus-everything can be possible
All walls are combined in the very top
Spring freshness and camping atmosphere
An optimal reduction in Japanese-style
The triangle is the leading element in the style of the House
Each room in the wood formation is equipped with a “top hat”. A small campsite, on an area of 156 m² in the wooded countryside of Tochigi Prefecture is located in Nasu Tepee. The architecture is beautiful as well as somewhat odd. “Nasu” is the name of the settlement and synonymous with Indian Tepee or tipi tent “Tepee”.
The pyramids rising are equipped with modern energy systems.
The architect Niroshi Nakamura was commissioned by a couple that is very nature and likes to garden at the weekend. The House will work of course, and at the same time extremely. The couple expressed against tree felling, but has the desire to live surrounded by trees. The clients want also mediated feel that they live in the wilderness – a challenge, when you consider how popular is the area for tourists.
The triangular concept Hiroshi Nakamura
One is in the next room through triangular openings
Despite the triangular nature of the House, the architecture looks very organic
The modest establishment is well thought out down to the last detail
The ceilings should be high, so that the residents can get direct sunshine. The surface should be optimally exploited. Everything is not urgently needed, should be omitted. The team of architects tried in design of the wooden house, to meet all the criteria of the customers, where they get tent shape on the current tipi. On the other hand, the shape of the tipi is known from native American folklore and the Mongolia. The people sit along the low walls and are to each other. This interactive communication is a huge advantage in our time.
The House consists entirely of wood
Despite the small area of the corridors are spacious
The gloss to the sleeping room is displayed graphically
And here to sleep alone and dream
The top triangular Windows look directly above the trees
The Japanese turn anything in art
Triangle, triangles and more triangles
A narrow passage leads into the Interior of the House
A side view in winter
Tents and campfires who don’t like that?
Peace in the middle of the forest
The tipi is designed to unite the top walls. There are triangular Windows that look directly over the trees at the top.
The House also has an environmentally conscious and efficient energy system. At the top of each ceiling, the warm air is stored and partially back ventilated in the summer. The wrong principle is applied in the winter. This fireplace is located in the largest room of wood formation, whose heat in the underfloor heating will be conducted.
