Peter Pichler’s Milanese architecture laboratory, which has worked with Zaha Hadid Architects, Delugan Meissl and Rem Koolhaas’ OMA, has developed a hospitality concept consisting of tree houses in the heart of the Alpine region.
“Youna Nature Resorts” includes inclined wooden structures that merge with their natural surroundings. The construction mimics both the archetypal gabled roof of a traditional tree house and the proportion of the tree on which it rests.
This resort project is wrapped in a wooden exoskeleton, creating a modular layout. This allows for the customization of the different houses between the number of floors, exterior/interior spaces, and glass or solid walls, all according to the needs of the visitors.
The façade also consists of a wooden trellis, which promotes privacy and blocks unwanted sunlight, while maintaining the panoramic views of this European mountain range. The use of natural and renewable material not only responds to a sustainable choice, but also to the original typology of the tree house. The Youna Nature Resorts concept is available for two, four, and six people.
