Playful modular homes nestled within nature by Precht

Modular Tree Houses by Precht | Eclectic Trends

The first thing that might come to your mind is a submarine periscope, or is it a water pipe? The idea of Bert is a family of playful modular homes nestled within nature that invite people to experience architecture and nature through the eyes of children.

We are fully aware that architecture is this serious and profound craft with a long culture and tradition. You see that when we architects find a reference for our projects in philosophy, literature, or nature. For this project, we also looked at art. But not at Michaelangelo or Dali. Rather we looked at cartoon characters of Sesame Street or Minions. We took a playful look at this project and wanted to create a rather unique character than a conventional building. A quirky looking character that becomes part of the wildlife of a forest. I think this quirkiness can create feelings and emotions. And maybe these are attributes in architecture that are missing these days.”
Studio Precht

 

 

Precht, co-founded by husband and wife Chris and Fei Tang Precht, designed the Bert family for startup Baumbau with an unmistakable wink to the single eyed-character from the Minions. The treehouse is designed to sit on a circular base, with tube-shaped modules made for a kitchen, living space, bedroom, and bathroom that can be individually stacked over. The structure would be pre-fabricated off-site in a factory then assembled in situ.

Flexibility is one of the core principles of this project, allowing for a single retreat with solar panels and composting toilets if you are the wild retreat type of person or larger communities that can also be built.

The minimal interior design reduced to the most essential appears dark and cozy balanced with large round windows and balconies to be as close to nature as possible.
