From the architect. Treehouse is a new concept developed by Jular, a family-owned company, being in the wooden products market for 35 years and ten years in the market of wooden structures. Treehouse is based on sustainability and modularity. Houses grow according to the needs of families or individuals, in the same way as the new branches of a tree.

Treehouse Riga is a more recent model adapted to a more flexible, solid and new typology. These new modules try to respond to nowadays demands of smaller houses and touristic enterprises.

For the interior decoration I thought of a mediterranean house environment, with a joyful and cosy interior design. Although there is a contrast with the nordic environment which is regularly associated to the original Treehouse, the mediterranean environment is also connected to the concept of the house.
