Östra Kvarnskogen by Brunnberg & Forshed

My Swedish is a bit rusty so I can't say much about this project, other than it won a big prize from the Swedish wood promotion organization Skogs Inustrierna. "Östra Kvarnskogen has been constructed within a large nature reserve with sharply sloping terrain. Here, nature holds sway, and there are houses which stand partially-upported by 7m-high steel pillars as a result of the mountain’s steep slope. The man-made and the natural appear to co-exist peacefully here. Its uniqueness leads heart and mind to a tranquil state."
