Peter Pichler Architecture has been commissioned to develop a brand-new hospitality concept consisting of flexible treehouses immersed in the European Alpine Region.


Dubbed the YOUNA Nature Resorts, the concept includes highly-flexible wooden pitched structures that simultaneously emphasize and merge with their natural surroundings.


The design references the idea of ‘a treehouse without a tree’, imitating both the archetype gable roof of a traditional tree house and the proportion of the tree it sits on. This results in a vertical pitched structure encompassing spaces that are elevated from the ground on a shrunken footprint – just like the trunk of a tree.


The treehouses are wrapped in a timber exoskeleton that reinforces the structure while creating a modular interior build-up and layout. This allows for exceptional customization, including number of floors, outdoor/indoor spaces, and glazed/solid walls, all depending on the needs of the customer and its context.


The treehouse’s façade consists of a double-layered timber lattice encapsulating the exoskeleton. The lattice secures a sense of privacy in the interiors and blocks unwanted harsh sunlight, while maintaining the magnificent mountain views from all interior spaces.


The overwhelming use of timber responds to both a conscious sustainable choice and one that stays true to the original treehouse typology.


The tree houses are available in three different sizes, depending on their accommodation capacity: two, four and six guests.
