An urban forest as a refuge for a house seeking serenity. A checkerboard encloses the spaces, alternating exterior courtyards with interior rooms, creating a continuous sequence of interior-exterior that ends in nature. The earthen walls of the forest enclose a rhythmic web of light and shadow passages.
