Karins house, Eknästet, meaning the oak nest house, is a wooden stilth house perched on top of a cliff nestled by big oak trees. It is inspired by the mid-century Californian stilth houses built on the steep hills around Los Angeles and in Big Sur, but mixed with a strong Japanese influence in terms of materiality and style, as it is entirely constructed from wood as opposed to steel.

Also, the wrap around porch that can be accessed from every room and the way in which the house has been carefully built in between existing trees has a distinct Japanese feel to it.

The exterior is dark and solid while the interior is light and calm.
