Kengo Kuma and associates have developed this wonderfully immersive translucent home.

The quaint and simple house is great at becoming one with nature during the day, as it blends well with the snow. During the night time however, it comes alive with bright lights that softly glow through as a result of the fireplace.

Inspired by indigenous people, this house is created to efficiently create and retain heat through the use of a fireplace. The house is constructed with layers of insulation and fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles.

The translucent home carries the philosophy of becoming one with nature. It achieves this by relying on sunlight to light the house, so one is forced to wake with the sun. Stats for Translucent Tent Homes Trending: Older & Average
