Designed by Peter Pichler, the prism-shaped treehouses project is nestled in an Italian forest in the Dolomite mountains. While designing these treehouses with steep roofs, Pichler took inspiration from the surrounding maple, poplar, and oak trees. He also uses local wood as a construction material to achieve maximum connection with the surrounding nature. The units offer two-level living spaces ranging from 36 to 55 m2. The lower level is a lounge area while the upper one is a sleeping area with a small bathroom.
While designing the prism-shaped treehouses, Peter Pichler uses local wood and takes inspiration from the surrounding trees’ shapes to create a sustainable design.
The project is actually an extension of an existing hotel, allowing its guests to enjoy nature more intimately. The use of blackened timber on the exterior also shows the architect’s attention to the environment and sustainable design.
