The designs of Kengo Kuma and Associates have a certain communication or connection with the natural environment. They unobtrusively became a part of their surroundings as much as a new sapling or patch of tall grass. Y Hutte in Eastern Japan illustrates this approach while also showing their unwillingness to use ornate or superfluous forms or finishing techniques. Simplicity in form and construction makes this small cabin a wonderful living space.
