This is a set of dwellings in a northern European setting.  The land has native pine, fir and birch trees and these tall trees cast ever changing shadows to the white and timber facade,   The white colour is chosen to reflect the colour of rising and setting sun.  Each unit has an overhanging bedroom space which has an open vista to the surrounding forest and the sea beyond while providing privacy from the adjacent units by being positions to an angle.  It's meant to be relatively affordable by using masonry ground level main frames and light weight timber structure on top.  The walls are heavily insulated for harsh winter conditions.
