Tree House Surrounded by Magical Natural Spaces
By Magaly • Aug 23, 2018
This project, called the tree house, is 8 meters high and boasts a total area of 80 square meters of interior. It is located in a little visited mountain village at the foot of Siming Mountain, Zhongcun, Luting, Yuyao, Zhejiang Province, China and was designed in 2018 by the architectural firm MONOARCHI under the direction of its professionals Xiaochao Song, Keming Wang, Fu Congwei, Yang Chao, Weina Guan, Linxian Luo, Xingyu Gao, Sun Fan, Jing Ya, and Lingling Zhang.
It is divided into upper and lower parts. The lower part is composed of steel support columns, whereas the upper part mainly employs wood. The tree house is located on one side of a dike, surrounded by ancient bamboo forests, facing the old tea factory on the other side of a stream. Part of the terrace hangs over the stream, creating a sensation that the terrace is floating in the water. In addition, since the steel columns are curled up at various points on the ground to minimize the impact on the environment, there is more space available for ground activities.
The town in which it is located rests on the edge of a secondary forest. A small river, dividing the town into two parts, crosses slowly from north to south. The tree house is located on the west bank of the lower stream. Two facing peaks are located east and west of the site, where the green bamboos extend across the hill, creating a friendly and quiet atmosphere.
