The Tree Bowl / Tropical Living

The Tree Bowl
The Tree Bowl

Inspired by the contact with the nature, the local people and the local architecture during my foreign semester on Bali, the design for the hilday house „The Tree Bowl“ arose. An important part of this is a large tree in the center of the design.

The basic idea is a fruit bowl. The building is supposed to mimic a bowl with a fruit in the middel symbolizing the „fruit of life“ in form of the tree crown. The focus is on the desire to live in harmony with nature and inhabitants. Architecture has a tremendous impact on the human psyche and our well-being. The tree bowl is supposed to have a positive influence on that with its inhabitants.
