If you are about to design a house for a sculptor, the expectations are undeniable higher. This perfectly designed forest house was a project carried out by YH2 firm for the sculptor Jacek Jarnuszkiewicz, who collaborated with architects Marie-Claude Hamelin and Loukas Yiacouvakisthou through the whole process.
The architects mentioned that “the project was conceived following the guidelines of the surrealist’s exquisite cadaver where each designer builds upon the work done by the previous one”. This resulted in a vertical home, composing of two wood volumes surrounded by a forest.

The bold exterior is made up of two wooden volumes where one is light and the other is dark, along with plenty of windows that welcome the natural light on all three floors.
An open floor plan gives the interior a more spacious feel. Windows frame unobstructed views of the forest expanding visual sight lines. Between the ground and first floor, glass panels were used to further open the interior up.
Just off the top floor’s lounge area, there’s a covered terrace that looks out over the nearby lake and mountains.
