AIA Treehouse Competition

With our AIA Treehouse Competition entry, we wanted to create an environment that fostered a meaningful connection to nature as well as a structure that encouraged exploration and play.  The resultant form is essentially two tree house spaces connected by a bridge.  The larger space uses the tree as a vantage point to survey the surrounding gardens through large apertures.  The smaller space has a greater sense of enclosure, focusing on the tree itself as an object of study and admiration.  Each space has a cargo net ladder that leads into or out of the raised tree house, encouraging unstructured exploration of different parts of the garden.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
