Off the Grid: Treehouse Concept

British design firm Sybarite aims to develop a modular treehouse concept that the company says could encourage a more organic approach to country living. The plan is to pre-fabricate modules of the house, quickly assembling a dwelling with up to five bedrooms.

Situated just above the tree top level, the idea is based on a green concept, where lightweight recyclable materials are used in its construction, and underneath the house, there will be what the company calls "undulating kinetic baffles" that use wind power to generate electricity. Even though this house could be built in less than two weeks, if they can just get this thing built in our lifetimes, we can have that treehouse we always wanted as kids.
