Designer Antony Gibbon merges natural materials with modern design in his latest tree house design—the Trine house. Completed as part of his Roost treehouse series, this freestanding cluster of bulbous buildings forms a triangular formation elevated into the forest canopy. Slatted timber surrounds the living spaces to allow for light and views, creating an immersive experience in nature. The proposed Trine house comprises four elevated pod-like spaces that bear resemblance to budding flowers with long stems. The treehouses are accessed from the forest floor via a winding staircase in the central pod building that serves as an outdoor room and viewing tower. Three treehouses branch out of the main pod and are connected with canopy walkways.

The slatted wood design created a semi transparency to the building allowing the light and wind to pass through it.” The three peripheral treehouse pods contain a large open-plan living area with floor-to-ceiling windows, a bathroom on the lower floor, and an accessible top deck. Water pipes and wiring for energy needs would be installed through the supporting treehouse stems.

The study, published in Nature Climate Change finds that if a stringent policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions were adhered to then there would be “a 50% chance of remaining below a 2?°C temperature rise target,” which would in turn “reduce impacts by 20–65% by 2100 relative to a ‘business-as-usual’ pathway which reaches 4?°C, and can delay impacts by several decades.” Read the rest of New Study Finds Sharp Emissions Cuts Could Reduce Climate Change Damage by Two-Thirds Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags:
