PREFAB TREE HOUSE

The pairing of prefab and tree houses is a brilliant combination. Sybarite [1] obviously understands this. Their new conceptual project in the rural UK approaches modular design with the goal of creating a flexible, easy-to-build dwelling in the country, though it’s more extraterrestrial than rustic.



The Tree House [2] has been created from the interior out, with the intention of giving optimal perspective across the treetops. “The “belly” of the tree house accommodates undulating kinetic baffles that utilise wind power to generate electricity.” The model uses many recycled components and can be built in two weeks. Given the name of the company, we must assume that the interior doesn’t skimp where aesthetics are concerned, though we can only speculate until live models are built.
