Liv­ing tree­houses

Element - - Clean Technology -

The ‘Roost’ con­cep­tual tree houses by de­signer Antony Gib­bon would be the dream of any child, and wouldn’t look out of place on the set of The Hob­bit. The tree houses are ‘grafted’ onto the trunks in the man­ner of an epi­phyte, and doesn’t harm the tree or stop it from grow­ing. With ac­com­mo­da­tion be­low, and a view­ing plat­form on top, the who struc­ture is ac­cessed via a spi­ral stair­case. Many of the pods are de­signed to be clus­tered in a group of trees, mean­ing they all have just one ac­cess stair­way to the ground.
