Helix Treehouse by Antony Gibbon

Helix is a Treehouse Built Without a Tree

The UK-based architect and designer Antony Gibbon is known for unique furniture and architecture designs inspired by organic forms of nature. Embroyo is one of his cool projects aiming to create a bio-mimicking treehouse clad in cedar shingles that look like tree burl.

After Embroyo, Helix is his another wonderful treehouse concept that’s basically a high towering house covered with a wood rain screen to blend in with the natural surroundings. Quite opposite to most treehouse designs, it doesn’t use a tree to create the accommodation, rather it’s a whole new building erected right next to trees.

Helix is a compact two-story house featuring a lounge, kitchenette and bathroom on the ground floor, and bedroom at the top. There’s a spiraling staircase leading to the different levels of the structure. The whole structure is clad in wood slats to render an appearance of a rain screen which not only provides glimpses to outdoors but also gives Helix its unique identity.
