The concept of tree house is always fascinating. Almost nostalgic, poetic. We see the idea used over and over again in today’s design. The concept of the Bridge House by Max Pritchard is enchanting. However how successful it is remains a personal opinion. I don’t know why i find the idea of corrugated metal in the middle of nature repulsive. This house feels almost like an abandoned trailer in the middle of nature.
The architect’s argument is that they have used local recyclable materials; therefore the corrugated metal is perfectly acceptable. Surely using recyclable materials is something to consider but as designers I think we should be able to merge that with aesthetics.
