This Modern Treehouse Overlooks A Medieval-Era French Castle

Dartagnans and the Young Architects Competition (YAC) launched an architectural competition earlier this year in which participants were tasked with designing their own unique treehouse concept. The competition had an interesting catch: The treehouses weren’t to be erected just anywhere; rather, the designs had to incorporate one of France’s various rural castle estates, such as Vibrac, Mothe Chandeniers, or Ebaupinay. Though each entry featured some impressive architectural innovations, one of the more notable designs to emerge from the competition was this Château-Scope concept from LMTLS.

Located just across the moat from the Château de La Mothe Chandeniers, the Château-Scope treehouse concept is designed to reflect the Earth’s orbit of the sun. It features a slanted roof screen that shields the structure from the surrounding landscape while providing its occupants with an intimate look at the 13th-century castle. Raised on a set of stilts, the treehouse is placed on the site such that its large hemispheric cutouts frame the Château de La Mothe Chandeniers and create a sort of snow globe-like effect when viewing. What results is an experience unlike any other — one that offers a new look at a very old piece of French history.
