Designed for Polestar Design Contest, KOJA is a modern treehouse, a cozy place where you can recharge your life with the help of nature. As a society we have reached a point where we have to reconsider the way we live. A clean environment is essential for healthy living, when you turn a blind eye to environmental violations, the more it will become polluted with toxins that are harmful to our health. During lockdowns, many people have realized that happiness is actually closer than they might think, go back to nature.
KOJA Treehouse offers a place where you can reconnect with nature while safely social distancing. Staying in this treehouse helps to raise awareness of how environment resources are used and appreciate the beauty of nature.
Designed by Kristian Talvitie, KOJA uses principle of symmetry for simple setup. This housing unit can also be used as emergency habitat for areas impacted by flood. The modular construction design allows for various usage scenarios. KOJA is 100% self-sufficient, it utilizes energy of the sun, wind, and rain. That adjustable rubber fins wrap around the tree creates enough friction to hold up the structure along with the cable wiring leaving minimum impact on the tree.
