The purposes of the design were to totally integrate the tree house onto the Oak through the organization of the structure of the building and the materials it used and creating a place to relax for adults and a place of exploration, a place of adventure and hiding for children. The oak tree provided a perfect platform for the tree house, it opens at the center, enables the room to be perfectly placed at the center. And due to its perfectness, there were no necessity to cut branches and nail something on the tree, instead, a 3D computer modelling accurately fits and camouflages the house to the foliage of the tree leaving only its roots and makes it as a part of estate on which rests the tree itself. Making it grows from the tree’s structure, against the central trunk and anchoring its root to the surrounding terrain.
Both exterior and interior are designed to match its nature, the roof is created from heather zone material, making the branches as a part of the house as if they come out of the house. The centered room is integrated with the porch that is located on branches that cross, giving a feeling of being surrounded by nature. Many meetings with the original tree structures are created to be access to the house including a bridge, a rope ladder, a slide and a rear staircase that allow access to the house through a side window. Even the interior lighting from the outside through the windows has been designed to replicate the natural lighting.
The side of the house is again created from the “zone material,” freshly uncorked oak bark are cut to finish the side. This material resist weathering but, it will look more natural due to the humidity that makes it being populated with mosses and lichens. Project Name: Rooted Tree House. Architect: Urbanarbolismo.
