Connect with Nature by these Tree-houses
If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind place to stay, check out these incredible Tree Houses proposed for the Dolomites in northern Italy. The black wooden-clad buildings, designed by Peter Pichler Architecture, are distinguished by their sharply pointed roofs, providing guests with the ‘opportunity to communicate with nature.’
Based in Milan The new proposed Tree House project in the Italian Dolomites is defined by Peter Pichler Architecture as a “slow down” mode of tourism in which “nature and the integration of architecture within it plays the primary role.” It’s quick to see what the first renderings mean just by looking at them.
The treehouses will range between 35 and 45 square metres in area, with each one designed with the same steeply pointed roof and base. The shape is inspired by surrounding fir and larch trees and as such, the structures will be built almost entirely from the same locally sourced wood.
Inside, each treehouse will be lined with untreated fire wood for a warm interior that contrasts with the black-painted façade. Each Tree House will be split into two levels which maximize views with floor-to-ceiling windows. The lower level will contain a lounge area, alongside a bathroom and an open-tread stair that leads to the upper level.
Upstairs, bedrooms look out over the mountains, while a second small bathroom will be found at the back of the structure. Each treehouse will be as sustainable as possible with tanks collecting reusable rainwater and geothermal heat pumps used for heating in the winter.
Another incredible treehouse hotel in Europe is the Atelier-Lavit-designed Origin Tree House. Perched in a hundred-year-old oak tree near Paris in France, it’s inspired by the nests of neighboring birds and is available to book on Airbnb.
