Wondering what new,exciting project will impress us next and astonish our sights and minds when it comes to tree houses, we have come across an uncommon, yet inspiring idea. You have all come to understand our fascination for levitating architectural objects from our previous articles like Up in a Tree by Pacific Environments NZ Ltd, The Mirror cube Hotel by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter, The Hem Loft by Joel Allen (and others) but this particular concept caught our eye in a different way.
Antony Gibbon’s Roost Treehouse got an unfamiliar inspiration: an elf tree from Lord of the Rings. Kind of strange? Depends on your preferences when it comes to movies. The concept levitates above the forest grounds and contains sleeping areas, sightseeing platforms connected trough spiral stairs. The shape of it manages to mimic the organic form found in nature. Therefore, it camouflages well into the surroundings as a way to enlighten the importance of the natural habitat. Harnessed to each tree, it does not harm them or stop them from growing.
The tree-house is conceived out of pod-like capsules which contain a central staircase that lead you to the top-viewing platform above the trees tops.The platforms are connected so that the construction is given more stability and strength.
Though these designs remain for now at the state of a concept, all of the involved materials in the construction of the Roost Treehouse will be sustainably sourced and will not harm the environment in any way.
