The front, side and rear elevations of the house slide open to erase all boundaries between indoors and out, connecting the spaces to gardens on both levels.

The Spruce Stove was created by Dutch designers Roel de Boer and Michiel Martens. The unique stove is a new approach to burning wood, it burns one long log, a bit at a time. Simply rest the tree trunk on the wheeled stand and gently push it into the cylindrical stove, the experience lasts as long as the trunk. A camera-aperture-like opening is closed around it.
