Tree House

Project Name: Tree House
Typology: Hospitality
Size: 70m2
Location: Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
Year: 2019
Tree House is located in the Town of Ubud, at the heart of the island Bali. With jungle running parallel to its sides, and rice terraces located at its front, the suite at the boutique hotel Stonehouse, stands five meters above the ground by reason of fourteen centimeter diameter, and eight meter long bamboo pillars. 
Tree House’s ceiling is made up of three centimeter wide by two and a half thick, four meter long bamboo splits, generating a gridshell that derives its strength from its double curvature. The overall shape deliberately integrates architecture with its environment, strongly provoking the structure’s relationship to nature. The interior floor assembled with bamboo splits maintains one level, smoothly transitioning into a wooden terrace. Experiencing this transition continues to highlight the unity of interior and exterior found at Tree House. 
The interior design honors the possibilities bamboo grants with a circular, nest-like custom made bed by Pablo Luna Studio. Every corner was meticulously planned to offer a unique experience. Tree House is an organic space for those who seek to meditate on the sheer wonders of Bali’s cultural context, and scenery.
