More than a pine box

Ukrainian architect Kostiantyn Kuvika, the principal at Plan Bureau, designed the house for a mountain backdrop. But he believes it could be adapted to any environment.  

Turning a box on its ear is a really interesting idea. I guess he must have loved playing in catboats boxes as a child. 

Imagine those interesting spaces created by the corners. 

“Glue-laminated pine would be used to build the structure, while the facade would be pine planks, treated with a waterproof finish. Pad foundations are specified to ensure it can be built anywhere.”
