following the previous prefabricated treehouse C in buduk, stilt studios, a company co-founded by alexis dornier and florian holm, introduces the opening of its first wooden prototype of treehouse C in ubud, bali. the project takes shape as a timber dwelling raised above a blooming garden in penestanan, a village in indonesia — known as an artist’s village since the 1930s. the architects sought to combine innovative prefab structure with a minimized footprint, maintaining a harmonious coexistence with nature.stilt studios' wooden treehouse C hovers above blooming garden in baliall images courtesy of arley mardo 

 

 

the stilt studios‘ treehouse is part of a little housing community called bukit sari, surrounded by restaurants and bars yet nestled into lush rice fields. the structural principle of the wooden treehouse C includes a core element made of four vertical columns and supported by a staircase suspending both the ceiling and the floor plane with firm steel cables spanning from that core. apart from the impressive hovering appearance, the structure allows a plane field to create slender facades with thin window frames and panels that carry their own load.stilt studios' wooden treehouse C hovers above blooming garden in bali

 

 

the layout of the project varies from the previous treehouse C in buduk announced in october 2020. instead of one open spatial layout and a corner terrace, this plan is divided into a kitchen with a living area and a capacious bedroom with a sitting space, while both zones are connected through a small corridor. the unit can accommodate two to four inhabitants and provides them with a sweeping view over the rice fields.stilt studios' wooden treehouse C hovers above blooming garden in bali

 

 

the surrounding garden scene was designed and executed by true nature nusantara; a bali-based regenerative landscape design consultancy that specializes in using permaculture design principles to create edible landscapes. moreover, the gardens are covered with flowers, tropical ornamental plants, edible fruits, and herbs, while featuring a small pond at one of the corners. 

 

 

‘the goal with this garden was to create a dreamy and wild labyrinth of low-maintenance and colorful perennial plants and trees, with hidden away places to sit and enjoy the view of the adjacent rice fields,’ said bodhi denton, the director of true nature nusantara.stilt studios' wooden treehouse C hovers above blooming garden in bali
