the ‘eco-perch’ is a quick to install luxury tree house unit by east sussex-based architecture and construction firm blue forest. assembled with natural materials, the structure may be implemented within 5 days, minimally impacting the landscape with adequate site preparation beforehand. contained within a 6 meter by 8 meter footprint, the combined kitchen, dining, living area and bedroom may comfortably accommodate four people. wrapped with a continuous roof surface, its oval sectional geometry visually connects with the outdoor scenery through windows and a veranda formed with a deep eave.

 

if placed beyond your personal garden, owners may acquire planning permissions to install the small dwelling which is expected to outlive 15 years. linking to existing infrastructure is ideal although an on-site septic tank may be used. a variety of off-grid and renewable energy sources allow for complete independence. the interior may be redesigned and retrofitted to serve as an office, studio or classroom.
