Modern Tree House in Australia Opening Up Towards a Lush Landscape
With the purpose of implementing a low maintenance home, perfectly integrated in its natural landscape, mmp Architects developed Hp Tree House, a building that seemingly floats on a galvanized steel support, minimizing its effects on the environment. Here are more details on the structure of this intriguing tree-house: “Three pavilions separated by breezeways form the single level of the home suspended above the natural slope. Outdoor dining overlooks the slightly lower lounge ‘tree-house’ which rests under a large canopy roof and is open on all sides. The main bedroom and ensuite pavilion is accessed across this breezeway and features framed views of the adjoining rock face which becomes a wet season cascade. Guest bedrooms and shared ablution facilities comprise the west pavilion which is separated from the living area by the entry breezeway and laundry/drying area.” The project is located on a secluded terrain on the flanks of Mt Whitfield in Cairns, Australia and opens up towards the forest and the views beyond through large windows, while remaining invisible to the city below.
