Mima Light House from Mima
Floating in Nature
Architectural practice Mima has designed a modular house which is truly at one with nature.
The box-shaped modules, which range in size from 21 to 32 square metres, have their bases lined with mirror, which create the illusion that the house is floating above the ground. The design of the house is an exercise in discretion, with the use of uniform materials (aluminium and glass on the outside, pine inside) accentuating the minimalist design, all the better for helping to focus on the views outside.
