Designed to develop a flexible planning arrangement and encourage a more organic approach to country living. Architecturally, the design evolves from the underside, to the interior and then outwards concentrating on views and aspects above the tree horizon. The ‘belly’ of the tree house accommodates undulating kinetic baffles that utilise wind power to generate electricity.

The flexible plan form comprised of modular prefabricated sections enables the overall size to vary from a single bedroom house up to a five bedroom model. The prefabricated design can be installed on site within two weeks, is extremely lightweight, uses many recycled products, is 80% self-sustainable and extremely low on maintenance.
