OYO, Open Y Office, created a small wooden house in Ghent, Belgium. This single family house is located in a distant forest between some winsome, Flemish chalets. The typology of a yacht became the basic idea when drawing this house.

As with the design of a yacht, space and movement were the driving forces behind the idea.

The client wanted to be visually and literally surrounded by trees. OYO translated this request into specific views, so every room would have a strong relationship with the forest.

The vertical wood of the house goes perfect with the slim, vertical pine trees which are surrounding the house.
