In order to meet demand for accommodation that's 'closer to nature', a project was drawn up proposing the building of 5 chalets in small clearings and 5 wood 'tree houses' constructed within the tree canopy of a small copse.
The tree cabins' floors are 6 metres above the ground. The cabins will be linked together with a wooden walkway and are to be composed of a bedroom, toilet and a
A 3 metre-wide picture window makes it possible to experience the outdoors from inside.
Furniture and decoration will respect the natural feel of the tree houses.
The study of the project (in particular its environmental impact) was guided throughout by respect for the site (insertion), the existing vegetation (trees and coppice), and of the fauna on the site.
The construction of the "cabins" on natural wood piles was chosen over the alternative of using the trees to support the full weight of the cabins. This ensures the long term safety of the cabins and avoids any damage to the trees.
Natural wood (Northern European pine) will be used in all the elements of the buildings to be constructed (chalets, cabins, piles, walkways, staircase) as well as in the wood fittings. Treated wood will be left in its natural colours.
Roofing will be dark brown, matching the dominant colours of the undergrowth.
