A beetle inspired tiny stilt house/treehouse from Terunobu Fujimori

I've noticed that this guy loves charring his wood for visual purposes (and others- read below), and while I'm not so sure on that look (and its bound to ruin your clothes with a single brushing-against), Terunobu's designs are no doubt fun and unique- especially this insect-like, tiny home on stilts.

Artist Terunobu Fujimori created the tiny building for the Victoria and Albert Museum as part of the exhibition “1:1 Architects Build Small Spaces”. Fujimori, who didn’t even begin designing buildings until the age of 44, explains that burning the outer layers of the wood makes it naturally waterproof and pest-proof. The whimsical interior of the tea house features minimal furnishings and artistically arranged pieces of charred wood on the walls and ceiling.
