Milan-based studio Peter Pichler Architecture has developed a concept for sustainable tree houses in West Virginia, United States, namely the project “Tree Houses”. The single units create a new experience to live in the woods with a maximum connection with nature.

The geometry to its sharp steep roof is inspired by the surrounding maple, poplar and oak trees and will be made of local wood.
The size of the units ranges from 36-55 m2 on 2 levels. The lower level is a small reading/lounge area, and the upper level the sleeping area with a small bathroom. The two levels are connected by a small internal stair.
The project will encompass sustainable buildings, conference and event centre, a food and agriculture hub, health and wellness proposals, sustainable education workshops and a vast visual and performing arts programme.
