La casa sull’albero (The Treehouse)
Some years ago a competition about a project of Treehouses was announced by the town of Cles (Italy). I had the possibility to ask more about their project to one of the selected groups “Officine Liquide” attending to see the realization of the project!
Why did you want to participate to a competition about Treehouses?
Could you tell me something about your project and about the approch that you used?
We imagined a pentagram running through the branches, a circulation path that would distribute the people to the various units hanging from the trees.
Every unit is a small wooden cube with access from the ceiling. This way you can use the roof as a terrace. Inside the double bed offers accommodation for two people and their backpacks, that can be stored in the big drawer beneath it. A square window allow people to stare at the trees from high, sitting on the bed and sticking out with your legs, leaving your feet floating from the ground.
At the end, the organization decided to build a small tree village, using the first four project selected. The village is to be built in 2015.
I wish good luck to Officine Liquide and to the other groups and I thank you again for your time.
