The idea is to find sustainable ways to evolve from our urban existence into something more attuned to nature

Although the TreeHotel is tiny, cutouts in the timber shell give it an airy, light-filled expansiveness. The inside bedroom is accessed by a small ladder that also leads to a roof, which doubles as a deck from which to enjoy the surrounding greenery. Finding new materials and technologies is at the heart of what Dass strives to achieve as they imagine how humanity will evolve from our dense urban existence back into a civilization in a more natural environment.

While very little detail is shared about which components of the cubic structure are comprised of new or recycled materials, we do know that the designers consulted with biologists and landscape and construction firms to come up with the most efficient use of natural resources. We absolutely love tiny buildings, and that feeling flourishes with every new micro design project featured on Inhabitat.
