treebed

14-05-2015

it all started with an idea i had a few month ago; i thought of putting a real tree in a house and then build a treehut in it.

just a few weeks ago it all came togehter when a private customer asked me to design a high sleeper.
in the first conversations about the project he told me that he grew up in the forest and thet he is going to live in the brasilian jungle a few month every year!

wow, what a story, of course i immedialtely remembered my treehouse idea.

i started designing the treebed within the limitations of the room and with the existing conditions in it, such as limited height and a few old open cabinets. 
for the research of the construction and also for the presentation i had build a small model and after a few meetings we changed the first design by creating even more height in the bed.

now the design was ready it was quite easy to make. only we had to put a window out to get the tree in.

i really loved doing this project and i am very glad that there are still grown-ups out there who like the playfulness of this idea!

thanks!
