This astonishing building may seem like a tree-house, but its uniqueness is indisputable in both – its flexible architectural structure, as well as its purpose and use. It is practically a ‘portable’ hotel made from bamboo rods brought together in an array of configurations to create a versatile module which can be easily expanded horizontally and vertically, allowing for three dimensional adaptations to the demands placed by site, location and purpose. On the other hand, as it is built high in between the tree tops, it allows the guests to enjoy the view in close contact with nature, being ‘one with the birds’.
