There is a contest for a treehouse design that is intriguing enough to inspire me to create some hand sketches.
This won't be anything like little Johnny's backyard treehouse.
I thought about how it feels to be in this treehouse. I wanted an organic form that is inspired by natural forms such as the ocean waves, the wisp of clouds, or the way sand is shaped and easily formed. My vision was a treehouse that flowed from one tree to the next in a curvilinear form.
Space is divided into living, bathroom, and sleeping zones. The living space is low cushions designed for casual seating low to the ground and flows with the shape of the perimeter. The bathroom is a freestanding, round silo shape with a shower, toilet, and sink.
The sleeping area is a roll-up futon.
Treehouse will be self-supporting creating energy from solar panels. A rainwater harvesting system will be implemented for showers. There will be a non-electric self-contained composting toilet that odorlessly converts human waste into safe fertilizing soil.
