Brick walls interweave existing trees on a scenic outlook. Implied spaces between walls serve as inhabitants' bedrooms, as well as shared communal spaces. The project dissolves barriers between architecture and nature, utilizing landscape elements as key structures to inform space. Choreographed apertures between bricks allow for passive ventilation and shadows that move throughout the day, highlighting areas of activity hour to hour.
