PAPER TUBE TREE HOUSE

Project by: KRISTAL.

Location: Klil

Program: Tree House and Storage

Size: 32 m2

Status: Completed

Year: 2019

Materials: Paper tubes, Wood, Plywood, Metal

This experimental paper tube structure has 3 distinct spaces built around an existing structure - the top one is a tree house / mirador, and the two bottom ones are for storage and workshop.

The design process focused on joints, ease of construction and inexpensive solutions. A hybrid of joints, custom made and shelf products, ensures structural stability, watertight connections, quick assembly and flexibility.

All paper tubes used were in line for shredding and were donated by a nearby paper factory. They were used exclusively for structural purposes as part of an experiment that would eventually lead to larger structures.
