Pigna Tree Ho­tel, Italy

The Ideal Home and Garden - - Ideal Getaway -

Pinecone shaped tree house by ar­chi­tect Clau­dio Bel­trame in the Ital­ian Alps let the vis­i­tor gaze to a per­fect starry night. The project started from the de­sire to cre­ate a struc­ture that is not only a refuge for man, but also a nat­u­ral el­e­ment of its en­vi­ron­ment, a mime­sis of its sur­round­ing. The tree house is de­vel­oped on three lev­els, rais­ing ten me­ters above the ground. There are two tree houses, first of which hoover four me­ter above the ground and serves as a panoramic cov­ered ter­race. The sec­ond in­volves the ar­rival of the stairs that lead to the in­te­rior through two large win­dows with slid­ing doors. The liv­ing room face the small kitchen and the bath­room door. Next to it, the wooden stairs lead to the bed­room on the third floor. The dou­ble bed lies un­der­neath a round sky­light at the top of the struc­ture. The struc­ture is com­pletely made of out Xlam wood in­su­lated with wooden fiber, cov­ered with larch wooden shin­gles, small in size to eas­ily fol­low the cur­va­ture of the tree houses. The area the tree house is lo­cated at 1,200 me­ters above sea level in the Dolomites, which is a UNESCO World Her­itage area.
