Tree House

Sustainable design

  • Team Competition

    Proposal: The Tree House will provide a remote dwelling for a professional couple. The structure is suspended 10 feet above ground using steel suspension cables with a wheelchair accessible ramp providing access to and from. Although the area of the tree house is only 215 ft2 it comfortably shelters two adults. The raised ceiling and the facade create a sense of openness, while the modular windows provide constant ventilation. The structure is made from recycled plywood and the exterior is made from aluminum. The solar panels used on the roof top create enough energy to power a system of such small scale, which renders the Tree House very inexpensive.
