Tree House PARA 55
The design narrative for this Para 55 dwelling celebrates & enhances the tree covered character of this 2500m² site on the edge of a Conservation Area.
For many years the sites native tree stock has been depleted and replaced with fir trees that have diminished the landscapes biodiversity, allowing saplings to grow unmanaged, producing tall spindly trees of low arboricultural quality.
This has created relatively open views at lower levels with dense tree canopies above. Our proposal seeks to enhance the wooded character, removing non native species to improve the ecology & biodiversity in a number of exciting ways.
Central to the scheme is a new dwelling which has been raised off the ground to maintain the existing visual penetration, providing a stunning, dramatic new dwelling nestled in the tree canopy above. Principal spaces provide panoramic views across a small glade within the woodland & discreet north and east elevations frame gaps between trees to provide a more intimate private outlook.
