Name: E’terra Samara Treehouse
Location: Toronto (Canada)
Located about four hours northwest of Toronto, five-star resort E’terra Samara plans to soon offer these 12 eco-friendly tree house villas.
The 12 tree house villas – E’terra Samara resort’s latest villa models that match luxurious comfort and futuristic style with the great outdoors — are proposed to hang in the tranquil Bruce Peninsula forest, just northwest of Toronto.
Inviting guests to ‘escape the city lights for starry nights,’ each open-aired villa will be uniquely positioned around its center tree to take advantage of specific site features and lighting while mutually ensuring guest privacy.
The one-bedroom villas, whose design is inspired by the samara seed — commonly known as the maple key — features a bedroom area, front furnished living space, composting toilet and an eco-friendly shower.
‘The structure is designed to be suspended from the tree’s trunk, rather than following the common practice of nailing to the tree, thereby hugging the tree rather than piercing its flesh,’ Farrow Partnership Architects says of their design.
But if lofting about in a canopy overlooking the Georgian Bay needs more pizazz, guests will also be able to take in the resort’s other activities including a day spa and sauna, salt water infinity pools, hiking trails, kayaking, canoeing, boat tours, or a stroll in their gardens.
For those guests who prefer to stay comfortably inside, however, the villas’ sheltering fabric bonnets are not only self-cleaning but actively neutralize airborne pollutants and odors.
