Call For Ideas: Tree House 2024 Architecture Competition

We all have always yearned for our personal space, one that takes us far away from our chaotic and stressful lives; our very own Home rooted in Mother Nature, one that reconnects us to our origins, rejuvenating our mind, body, and soul.

We all aspire for a home that is not just an extension of our persona but is also an expression of our individuality and freedom. Growing up many of us have dreamt of living in a tree house, a fortress to protect and nurture everything we hold dear. An abode high up in the clouds, under the starry skies, amongst the tall trees, chirping sounds of birds and aromas of nature. A playscape for all our dear ones that fosters everyone around helping to fulfill our dreams cultivating a bond that stays.

For most of us a tree house is one of our greatest childhood dreams triggering our wildest imaginations.

OPPORTUNITY: The Tree House looks at redefining a home as an active part of Mother Nature, with all the necessary amenities, resources required for productive living. The Tree House can be visualized to re-imagine sustainability through innovation of maximum usable space in a minimum footprint, suspended between the earth and sky, on spectacular treetops.

CHALLENGE: We challenge you to go on a nostalgic trip down memory lane and picture a lighthearted home that prioritises solitude and fostering inner tranquility to picture a life spent in the midst of the great outdoors, beneath the starry sky, and suspended amid the majestic trees. The Tree House should have a unique, imaginative, and sustainable design. It is imperative that the designed proposal facilitate communication between the internal rooms and external surroundings. The suggested design ought to be carefully thought out and shield consumers from the elements of the natural world.

SITE SELECTION: Participants are to decide the location for the proposal, such as coastal areas, riverbanks, mountains, forests, urban environments, or even in your backyards. Choose your tree, dare more, and design your treehouse.
