YOUNA Nature Resort – our latest hospitality concept – consists of flexible treehouses immersed in the European Alpine Region.
Referencing the idea of ‘a treehouse without a tree’, the design imitates both the archetype gable roof of a traditional tree house and the proportion of the tree it sits on. This results in a vertical pitched structure encompassing spaces that are elevated from the ground on a shrunken footprint – just like the trunk of a tree.
The treehouses are wrapped in a timber exoskeleton that reinforces the structure while creating a modular interior build-up and layout. This allows for exceptional customization, including number of floors, outdoor/indoor spaces, and glazed/solid walls, all depending on the needs of the customer and its context.
