They make us dream and immediately take us back to when we were children. Treehouses are the dream of every little adventurer and the world of architecture seems to be increasingly attracted by this type of housing.
In the past, we have seen completely transparent tree houses, built as if they were trees, or even incorporating a tree inside them. Now we present a treehouse without a tree.
Treehouse Module, this is the name of the conceptual project by Camila Simas and Marco Franchini that came to life thanks to Amanda Castilho’s renderings and was designed for a particular area of France, the Loire Valley. It is one of the greenest areas of the state, where different species of trees coexist and where, hidden among the woods, the spectacular castles meet.
The two architects have explored the concept of the tree house, merging it with that of a modular house, to have the least possible impact on the surrounding nature.
Marco Franchini, who since the beginning of his career has dedicated himself to the different possibilities of modular design, and Camila Simas have then individually developed the different spaces of the house (bathroom, living room, bedroom), giving the possibility to create the house to your liking.
The 5 modules can be separated and joined by a walkway or stacked on top of each other, showing all the potential of the Treehouse Module.
Each of the two options allows you to keep intact the prerogative of each tree house, which is to live in close contact with nature.
