Artist’s Studio in the Shape of a Playful Wooden Treehouse
This unusual artists’ studio was developed by studio Malcolm Fraser Architects and is located in Glen Nevis, Scotland. Deep in the forest, the intriguing unit is only accessible through a bridge and a beautiful wooden path, also built by the project team. According to Dezeen, Outlandia was developed for an art association called London Fieldworks and wishes to serve as a flexible meeting space in the forest for creative collaboration and research. Here is more information from the architects: The building itself sits out from a 45 degree slope: a treehouse, part-built out the trees cut down to form the site, entered across a bridge from the slope behind; a simple box, leaning-out into the view with big windows opening-up to it. Part of the building of it was a low-impact, eco-friendly use of material recovered from the site; part the opposite, high-impact and hairy landings of concrete, for the foundations, from a helicopter. What do you think? Is this the sort of place that could trigger ideas and creativity?
