STUDIO TOMÁS SARACENO. Sans titre. Roost Treehouse is designed to mimic the organic curvaceous forms found in nature.

sans titre

The aim was to create a tree house that could blend in and almost become part of the tree itself, becoming camouflaged in the surrounding forest. The tree house consists of a series of pod like capsules that are harnessed to the trunk of each tree using a bracing technique that causes no harm or interference with the trees growth. Each capsule has a central spiral staircase leading up to an outdoor platform. This connects to the adjoining pod allowing access into the next structure a well as providing additional support to the overall structures. Only one of the pods has the spiral staircase running to ground level. These Structures are also available without the need for a Tree running through the centre and instead replaced by a Central Pole for support.

Sans titre. Embryo is a cylindrical two story tree dwelling that utilises the principles of bio mimicry.

The design of the structure was to give the illusion that it is almost part of the tree trunk like a Burl as well a taking certain elements from a wasps nest. It is clad with cedar shingles to blend the structure in with the surroundings. The Embryo derives its name from the early stages of development in nature. The idea was to re address the way we live in today’s society and look at a more ecological and a simpler way of living than consuming our earths resources. We are more and more being disconnected from our natural surroundings and the embryo is part of a series of designs to try and reunite and reconnect us back to the elements and how we interact with nature, whilst using materials resourcefully.

Sans titre. De quoi s’agit-il ?

La tente Cacoon est un hamac suspendu, une sorte de tipi à suspendre en forme de goutte d’eau, qui permet de se reposer après une longue journée de travail, de faire la sieste dehors en profitant du chant des oiseaux, ou encore de s’amuser avec les copains le temps d’un week-end (sans trop chahuter, ce n’est pas un trempoline !). L’avantage avec Cacoon, c’est que vous pouvez vous relaxer au rythme de la balancelle, en intérieur comme en extérieur, en toute saison ! A l’instar des tentes suspendues Tentsile, cette tente nous rappelle des souvenirs d’enfance, de cabane dans les arbres, d’aventure et les ravive autour d’un hamac à la forme conviviale, originale et design ! En fait, Cacoon c’est un peu plus qu’une simple cabane dans les arbres. La vie dans les sphères. Miguel chevalier projects explosions of massive stars onto france's rodez cathedral.
