TEST | Triumph Architectural TreeHouse Award 2014

  • Registration date: Sep 2014 | Submit your project: Dec 2014


Competition Information:

The aim of this international ideas competition is to recognise the architectural and design principle involved in designing a high quality treehouse and the role they sometimes play in shaping our ideas of low-cost, low maintenance and sustainable architectural design in many world communities. 

This competition investigates, explores and emphasises the importance of sustainable concept in Treehouse design as they become ever more popular, more intricate and more commercial.

The competition invites participants to design an Original Contemporary Treehouse for use by a professional city couple as an escape space and retreat lodging to be used by the couple to recharge and feel close to nature. The Treehouse could be set on any woods, park land, Island, mountain top or large garden landscape with great views and connection to nature. It should be a cabin that allows them to connect and enjoy nature - the daylight, moonlight, stars and the sounds of nature (waterfalls, wind, birds, insects and other natural inhabitants).

Treehouses have a magic that stimulate imaginations in natural surroundings and an unforgettable adventure. The uniqueness of a evey Treehouse based on the unique feature of the host tree or trees adds to the childhood dream fairy tale like hideout, adventure playground or a space of great escape, set high in the sky. It is also a space of retreat transporting adults from the stresses of everything reality to a world high up the tree-top to be close to nature. Treehouse can be on any deciduous or coniferous trees such as oak, beech, maple, ash, cedar, hemlock, fir, larch or juniper. Participants are also free to use other strong and healthy trees types for their design proposal. Participants are also free to explore the possibilities of placing the Treehouse module amongst the trees, without directly using the branches or trunks but project the illusion of it is being carried by the tree.
