The Modern Tree House is a family project and is based on the initiative of the grandfather Hans-Joachim and his grandson Kolja, who ultimately implemented the Tree House project. Once more, it is conceived as an experiment and a research project for new construction and housing in tune with nature. The Modern Tree houses are places that enraptured, inviting one to play and show and what is more, to look at things objectively and change perspectives in other words, these are inspirational places to gather strength. The two tree houses are situated precisely at the transition from city to countryside and thus connect both worlds – vibrant Berlin with restorative scenery.

Wooden Tree House From the architect:
It is intended to serve as an oasis and inspire friends and guests of the family, as well as students and those interested in tree house architecture. We were very enthusiastic when the developer, Kolja Stegemann, approached us with the idea of implementing tree houses in the urban environment of Berlin.
Modern Tree house are normally associated with a rural environment or natural surroundings. Thus, such an undertaking is somewhat rare and very appealing for a tree house kits planner.
In Berlin, one is in good company with regard to small, extraordinary buildings. Here, there are many alternative projects, which often with small budgets occupy niches in the city. As tree house designer and planners, we looked forward to contributing to the tradition of architectural culture in Berlin through this task.
Luxury Modern Tree House Context:
The district of Zehlendorf is characterized by somewhat bourgeois residential buildings with larger properties and gardens. There are not many multi-storey residential buildings here, unlike many other parts of Berlin.
The special feature of the modern tree house site lies in its outstanding place. Bordering the forest, it is located in the immediate vicinity of the beautiful lakes of Krumme mLanke and Schlachtensee. The fact that this land was not built on earlier is surely a stroke of luck and is certainly due to the specific demands of the family.
The modern tree house were to cover a relatively small proportion of land. Thus, the usual need of using the last available square meter profitably does not apply here. Of course, the preservation of the tree population on the 650 square meter garden property was one of the essential concerns of the developer.
Urban Tree House Architecture:
After studying various tree house designs, two cubic units were created – each with 21 square meters of living space. Both buildings hover on a four meter high base and are equipped with a covered exterior surface at the same height, as well as a lower terrace at a height of 2.60 meters.
For one of the tree houses, the intermediate level and both flights of stairs are supported by flexible suspensions from the oak.
The tree house building’s utilities, supply circuit and storage space for garden tools and waste are located in the base that is lined with larch slats.
Modern Tree House Structure Plans:
The load-bearing design supports and frame above it consist of galvanized steel sections. Solid prefabricated five-layer spruce panels are used in the walls, ceiling and floor. The advantage of this construction lies in its structural and ecological qualities.
These solid wooden parts have a high insulating quality, are breathable, have a high heat storage capacity and can be installed quickly and easily. The rear-ventilated facade consists of aluminum composite panels.
Depending on the angle of the light, this can result in a vivid interplay of color on the outer envelope of the tree house buildings.
Modern Tree House Interior Design:
The interior provides everything one could need: a bathroom with a shower, a light flooded interior featuring a kitchenette and comfortable bed, as well as some beautiful home accessories. When it comes to the wall and ceiling panels, the solid wood spruce panels have been left visibly in their natural state.

Shortly before the start of construction, Hans- Joachim Stegemann died in old age. Unfortunately, he was not able to witness the completion of the tree houses and the development of his idea to build something unusual on his land.
The modern tree house are dedicated to him and his wife. We would like to thank Hans-Joachim Stegemann and his grandson Kolja for this beautiful project.
