Modern Forest Box
"Modern Forest box"
I'm thinking of something to create that will let me live in peace at the same time never forget that a man once lived on a modern time.
The site is located anywhere with many trees they called forest beside a river.
*As the project is located surrounded by nature. We don't know how scary it can be.
(I'm looking at you, bears, wolves, & piranha-like fishes).
I thought of a concept that will let me live in safety... "A BOX"
*Since I’m an avid video game fan and it started with 8-bit I had the chance to blend it with the main concept.
The design somewhat contradicts the environment. I innovate a typical cabin and incorporate a design that suits my style. These are the main elements that let me achieve it:
*Whenever I see a concrete house, I magically state it to be a secured place as it is molded to be strong and has the ability to last for many years. It can help with the durability of the box in case of a strong natural calamity that might occur on the river.
*FYI concrete can adapt well to nature especially surrounded by trees, as "lumot" can grow on it with the help of high humidity in forests. So for me, it is not meant to disrespect nature because I conceived the idea that human intervention also takes role in the cycle of nature even if only a few acknowledge it. I'm just transferring foreign natural elements like sand, gravel and cement and mold it just like a bird import objects to build a nest.
2.) Glass windows
*visibility is still the heavy candidate for survival. Even if it is fragile element, I feel more secured since I have the visual of the surroundings and, besides, I learned that brightness can scare animals away. So interior lights can help alarm the sh*t out of them.
(Still looking at you bears and wolves)
*And, of course, you don't want to miss the opportunity to sit, relax, stare, & admire the nature in a comfort of home.
*I used it to fit with the surroundings. Nothing more, nothing less. Wait…
*Now I have the chance to show who’s boss by letting the trees watch their specie made into a plank.
*The spaces are as simple as it gets. A living area, small dining table for 4, and a counter bar with sink and oven.
*Small gardening area for emergency purposes and a cut piece of land to allow water to pass through for irrigation purposes.
*A dock, because there’s a river. Who doesn't want parking area for boats right?
*Made from Sketchup and Lumion with love
*For expressive and educational purposes only
