“How many of us did not dream when we were children of having a place to play, away from the world, for ourselves or to share with friends?” rodriguez and el amrani wonder. “A place where you can get there by bike, climb on boards attached to the trunk until reaching the top, where you can play and dream of stories and adventures”. the project was born from a child’s interpretation of a treehouse, aiming to create an environment that takes us back to a time and place, where we feel safe, at peace, and where all around us becomes a great playground. the proposal goes beyond architectural programming and becomes a complete interior experience, allowing users to rediscover moments spent between the folds of memory, in a personal refuge.
each treehouse embodies a simple construction with clean lines, settling harmoniously at the water’s edge, without having to destroy the environment for its construction. the treehouse modules are presented as wooden and glass polyhedra with two levels and a large window, opening outwards, keeping residents in close contact with nature. either from the cantilevered structure 3m above the surface of the lake, or from units located directly on the ground that open to the water, residents feel like they are floating, while enjoying stunning panoramic views and being one with the overall natural habitat.
