Project Overview

The competition invites participants to design an Original Contemporary Treehouse for use by a professional city couple as an escape space and retreat lodging to be used by the couple to recharge and feel close to nature. The Treehouse could be set on any woods, park land, Island, mountain top or large garden landscape with great views and connection to nature. It should be a cabin that allows them to connect and enjoy nature – the daylight, moonlight, stars and the sounds of nature (waterfalls, wind, birds, insects and other natural inhabitants).Treehouses have a magic that stimulate imaginations in natural surroundings and an unforgettable adventure. The uniqueness of a evey Treehouse based on the unique feature of the host tree or trees adds to the childhood dream fairy tale like hideout, adventure playground or a space of great escape, set high in the sky. It is also a space of retreat transporting adults from the stresses of everything reality to a world high up the tree-top to be close to nature.
