Yellow Treehouse Restaurant by New Zealand based Pacific Environments Architects Ltd. (PEL)

Friday, November 21, 2008

Yellow Tree House is designed by Pacific Environment Architects Ltd and the tree house concept is based on reminiscent of childhood dreams and playtime, fairy stories of enchantment and imagination.

"The tree-house concept is . It’s inspired through many forms found in nature -the chrysalis/cocoon protecting the emerging butterfly/moth, perhaps an onion/garlic clove form hung out to dry. It is also seen as a lantern, a beacon at night that simply glows yet during the day it might be a semi camouflaged growth, or a tree fort that provides an outlook and that offers refuge.The plan form also has loose similarities to a sea shell with the open ends spiralling to the centre . " (text from PEL)
It sits almost 10m wide and over 12m high, with the split-level floor sitting 10m off the ground.

A masterpiece that fits into the natural environment perfectly.

Why can't we have this architecture in Malaysia? We have coconut trees, durian trees...
