House EVTM is a creation from OYO Open y Office, a small wooden single family home in Belgium, situated in a forest between some Flemish chalets. OYO had the basic idea of a yacht typology for this project. As with the design of the yacht space and movement are the driving forces behind this idea. The client asked for their home to be visually and literally surrounded by trees and OYO translated this request perfectly by making sure that every room would have specific views and a strong relationship with the forest. The north side was kept shielded, due to the presence of neighbors and lack of light in comparison to the south and east sides which are open and bathed in light. The exterior walls are clad with pre weathered cedar giving it a warm muted grey colour and the vertically placed wood of the house goes hand in hand with the tall vertical pine trees surrounding it.
