Tree Sanctuary

Casa Flotante by TalleresqueMany people would dream of a secret hideaway nestled amongst towering trees, where the bustle of city life is washed away by the incessant chirping of birds and crickets. This idyllic vision is the reality for the fortunate owner of this treehouse in the outskirts of Mexico City, designed by the architects at Talleresque.

The ground floor of this 3-storey wooden tower is designed as a multi-functional space with a sofa, desk, minimalist kitchen and a drum kit. Floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors offer uninterrupted access to the decked terrace, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor living space. A minimalist floating staircase winds its way around the outside of the building like a ribbon, bringing you closer to nature as you climb up the tower. The first floor houses the shower and toilet whilst the bedroom is on the top floor, with light flooding in through large windows and skylights. The minimalist design of the building is softened by the use of timber in different colours and textures, which creates an interesting industrial organic vibe.

This treehouse is the perfect synthesis of man and nature, a tranquil sanctuary to get away from it all.

A good way to recreate the rustic wooden cabin look is to use photo-realistic wallpaper such as the Scrapwood designs from NLXL. The Duck pot from 101 Copenhagen and the concrete Nuclear plant holder from Lyon Beton would also look great.

Shutter House by State of Kin

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
