Working with design company Dans mon Arbre, Morel designed Kaban at the Kapellerput Country Estate. The project echoes the relationship between architecture and nature with a design that is in unison with its location. Dans mon Arbre is known for constructing tree houses and unusual wooden structures from sustainable materials.

The Kaban tree house is a unique and inspiring location for meetings, special events, and even weddings. It offers a total escape from distraction. Imagine holding a meeting amidst the treetops – can’t you just see the creativity fly?

When the weather is pleasant, the harmonica-style doors open onto a large terrace (which holds up to 100 people) amidst the trees. In the winter, the proximity of snow covered branches brings a different type of tranquility.

The total structure is about 525 square feet, which includes a meeting room, two smaller satellite rooms (meant for small groups, or bride’s quarters for weddings), a satellite toilet, a large terrace, and kitchen/bar area. Each satellite is nearly cylindrical in shape, with a slight outward slope towards the top. The minimalist, airy interiors were designed by De Kliuw.

Perfect for meeting in the trees or a wedding with birds and squirrels as witnesses, the Kaban treehouse makes the Swiss Family Robinson fantasy a reality.
