When a classic concept is used to create something new and innovative it’s always a treat! Occasionally a modern treehouse pops up that strays away from the traditional design but still manages to capture all the special things we love about treehouses!
But that is not the only space that was altered to meet the growing demands of an urban family. The more rigid kitchen of the house with a counterproductive U-shaped kitchen layout was replaced by a new kitchen where a smart worktop and ergonomic island combine modern minimalism with industrial overtones.
Beyond the passive solar design principles a lovely garden and green landscape around the residence add to its sustainable style. Despite a modest street façade the house opens up towards the rear and brings the outdoors inside.
When we combine these philosophies we get a modern version of a treehouse – a beautiful house among the trees that can serve as a permanent residence or your favorite vacation spot. Check out some of the most down below!
The concept of a treehouse can inspire a house set in the clearing among the trees still lifted above the ground but clearly setting itself apart from the nature with a noticeable sand-colored exterior. When the color scheme of the treehouse matches the surroundings down to a T the little house has the tendency to completely blend in and can usually benefit from an element that stands out just a little bit such as a light fenced deck.
A smart blend of contrasting finishes that include copper stone terrazzo and beeswax plaster create a fun interior where artwork and accessories add bright and vivacious color.
The MINIMOD moves away from the constraints of conventional housing as most of the entire home can be built off-site in a factory and assembled at the remote location with ease. A case in the point is the two exquisite prefabs dubbed and nestled in the picturesque and uninhabited landscape of Catuçaba in Brazil.
