Located in Pedras Salgadas Eco Resort & Spa, Portugal are structures that exhibit the way designs should be; inspired by nature, translated, carefully articulated, well-designed and have minimal impact on the surroundings.
Designed by Luis Rebelo de Andrade and Tiago Rebelo de Andrade, the cabin achieves its motif through its length and shape. As the long ramp gradually widens as you reach the entrance of the cabin you really begin to see the tree snake gliding.
To maintain its eco-friendly design the tree houses were prefabricated and then assembled on site to minimize impact. If we were not impressed already, the design also consists of solar panels that keep the carbon footprint to a bare minimum and a greywater harvesting system.
