Treehouse Riga is a sustainable home designed as prefab building by Appleton & Domingos in Lisbon. It has modular design to provide flexibility and compact building. The whole design is based on Treehouse system with high sustainability.
Built with only two modules, this eco construction offers high flexibility and compact design for the owner, very fit to the demand on reduced area housing. The two modules cover a living room, integrated with kitchen, two small bedrooms for childs / guest and for main bedroom, and a sharing bathroom. One module covers the private area, while other covers the public area. The modular concept provides possibilities to expand the building when needed, provides affordability also. The contrary from other Treehouse concept is that this house does not have the capacity to evolve, presenting itself as a closed project.
The materials chosen for this sustainable home building are considerd carefully to provide sustainable materials with high durability. This home was build by using wood materials. The painted wood materials make this house different from other Treehouse.
A birch wooden sliding wall / door may provide different perception for the house at daytime and night, depending on the position. This door / wall separates the public area and the private area. At daytime, the door is positioned so the living room can be extended to the children/guest's room, while at night the door is closed providing privacy for the private area and and allowing independent access from both bedrooms to the bathroom.
Glazing is placed carefully to provide natural daylighting and maximize the view for the sustainable prefab house. The outdoor activities are supported by the two small patios with two difference characteristic, one is opened, the other is fenced.
