A set of 13 cabin-like structures nestled among mango and palm trees form what we can only describe as a very charming and tranquil resort. You can find this place in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The project, called simply Tree Houses, was developed by architecture studio fabriKG and was completed in 2016. This is a project that reminds us of all the inspiring uses for bamboo in architecture and design and the reason for that becomes obvious as soon as have a look at these beautiful structures.
The tree houses are scattered among the palm grove being completely surrounded by vegetationThe units are camouflaged using local cane and that gives them a really textured lookThe units are very compact but also very open and closely connected with their immediate surroundingsFor added privacy, the windows are covered up and open like this
All 13 units share the same style and design aesthetic. They have lightweight steel structures which takes them off the ground and puts them among the tree canopies. The exteriors are wrapped in cane which adds a layer of texture to the design and allows the structures to more easily and naturally blend into the landscape. There’s a wonderful and direct connection with nature defining this entire project and it wouldn’t be possible without the palm grove that creates a tiny jungle on the site.
