This treehouse project aims to create an alternative space for people to reconnect with nature, without giving up comfort.
Respect the environment.
With spaces adapted to basic needs, which allow you to be close to green spaces, in symbiosis and harmony.
Suspended above the treetops, these high-rise cabins blend into the landscape, perching there almost without contact.
It is designed as an alternative to more aggressive tourism that transforms the landscape to suit a rigid program of commercial hotel uses.
At WLAB, they understand that reconnecting with natural environments can only happen if the environment is respected and it is architecture that adapts to nature, coexisting in balance.
The interior layout of the cabins is modular and can be adapted to different uses to adapt to more complex programs and the needs of each station.
Economical, durable and low-maintenance materials.
The construction is designed with economical and low-tech prefabricated modular elements, which can be put in place quickly, reducing the construction time and the equipment required.
All elements are flat and straight. Easy to cut to reduce manufacturing time. The internal and external structure is made up of regular rectilinear profiles in galvanized steel. They are economical and durable, as well as recyclable once the useful life of the construction is over. They are one of the most economical options on the building structure market.
- Structure: Recycled aluminum profiles.
- Panel exterior cladding: Aluminum sandwich panel with internal thermal insulation.
- Interior coatings and floors: Wood of certified and sustainable origin.
100% renewable energy.
To achieve autonomous energy autonomy, the cabins are equipped with solar panels on the deck that could generate enough electricity for each module.
In addition, each tree house has low pressure biodigester bags, connected to the sewage outlet, which obtain gas from organic materials. It is used for heating, hot water and kitchens.
Zero carbon footprint.
With the introduction of solar panels, the entire energy demand of each module can be covered, significantly reducing the carbon footprint of the villa.
With a proper reforestation proposal on the plot itself and in other needy areas, this station could achieve a negative carbon footprint, sequestering more carbon than it emits during its useful life.
Wood from replanted trees can sequester carbon equivalent emissions associated with the construction process. Thus, they want to achieve a neutral balance for the environment.
