Bark House, Highland Craftsmen

Forest nutrients.

Highland Craftsmen has created a new, green industry for the naturally pristine but economically impoverished Appalachian Region of North Carolina.  The essence of forestry was forever changed as bark was reclaimed from being a waste by-product.  Today, this process is part of larger biomass utilization.  The face of architecture has been impacted, as the bio-mimicry of bark transformed the exterior of structures to celebrate trees in a more holistic way.
