Tree House 2021 | Winners Announced

Tree House 2021 Architecture competition results are announced. The architectural design competition posed a challenge to the participants to imagine a way of living in the lap of nature, suspended amongst a magnificent tree and under the starry sky. A space that is well-integrated with Mother Nature, thus bringing us closer to a sustainable future. With a notion to redefine forest life, the wining schemes ranged from innovating work-life balance during pandemics to taking time from monotonous life.

The esteemed jury for judging this competition consisted of    Marco Lavit (Atelier),  Widhi Nugroho (Studio WNA), Deepak Guggari (VDGA STUDIO), Peter Eising (Pacific Environments Architects) Tiago Rebelo De Andrade (Rebelo Andrade), Luis Rebelo De Andrade (Rebelo Andrade), Arq. Juan Pablo De La Rosa (Talleresque).

The top three winners were awarded total prize money of $4000 while ten entries received Honourable Mentions. Here are the winning entries. The full result for the competition TREE HOUSE 2021 ARCHITECTURE COMPETITION can be found on https://competition.volzero.com/competitions/result/15

 

 WINNERS– 

First Place:

 

               

 

KAJAL KOCHAKPOUR AND ROZA BEMANI- (IRAN)

“The spatial structure of the wood allows you to experience a variety of views through breaks at different levels and Life on a tree is created by walking through the empty spaces between the branches and taking full advantage of the landscape and the movement between these empty spaces”- This idea transforms life in the forest into a dynamic spatial experience by emphasizing the unique potential of trees and thereby challenging the notion of living.

 

Second Place:

PRIYANKA SHARMA, EDWIN JAMES AND GAYATHRI AASISH JANARDHAN -(INDIA)

The Nest-

The client is a couple that represents our current working-class society who, especially wants to break away from the repetitive dullness of urban life but is unnerved about the lack of steady income. “Birds are inspirational, they perch away from dangers of the ground, still not far nor close, nested in a space, natural, found to be suitable to build their home”.  It is a refuge for the couple who needs to live close to nature but not barefoot.

 

Third Place:

 

 

PUSHKAR SHARMA AND AVINASH CHAKRAVORTY-(INDIA)

Gharonda-

In times of pandemics, there has been a drastic change in the work culture. Concepts like ‘Work from home’; ‘Work-ation etc. have become commonplace and professionals are finding new ways to increase their productivity without compromising the work-life balance. `Gharonda’ is one such attempt to provide working professionals a space where they can live minimally amidst the peace and calm of nature.    “Windows sprout from the central part like the sub-branches of a tree sprouting from the main branch.” The form of the tree house is inspired by the structure of a tree itself.
