Our vision of a treehouse is a construction that allows us to immerse into the unique aura of the treetop while the only physical impact of our appearance is a soft and friendly touch of its branches.
The construction is designed to be as lightweight as possible with a focus on sustainable materials. The structural cage is made from laminated veneer lumber and forms a dodecahedron to maximize volume and minimize the surface area. Due to the high symmetry of the dodecahedron it can easily be combined to bigger structures. The exterior shell is made from insulated polycarbonate windows and insulated plywood panels. The Roof is openable to dive even deeper into the surrounding. The balloon membrane is fully transparent and consists of multiple helium filled chambers, to ensure safety even if it might lose pressure. It is tied to structural cage with ultralight Kevlar-ropes. The chambers adopt the dodecahedric form of the cabin to keep the Volume as low as possible.
The airship it is winched to the ground and can be accessed through a trapdoor and a built-in ladder from below.
