Modular, Green Tree House Design in Portugal

Modular, Green Tree House Design in Portugal | container | Scoop.it
Portuguese architects Luís Rebelo de Andrade and Tiago Rebelo de Andrade have realized a modular tree house for the Pedras Salgadas Park.
The innovative project challenges pre-established concepts associated with modular construction, making use of new technology and lightweight, flexible construction.
The materials gives a sense of connection with nature and establishes the symbiosis between house and Park.
