His latest mockup work, "Embryo," consists of a singular round structure, positioned in the middle of a tree like a burl. According to his website, residences would access the entrance via ladder, which would lead to the hatch-door opening. It would be a two-floor dwelling, attached to the tree using "braces," which would not damage it.
As with his "Roost" treehouse design, Gibbon's created the "Embryo" to encourage humans to connect deeply with nature. "We are more and more being disconnected from our natural surroundings and the embryo is part of a series of designs to try and reunite and reconnect us back to the elements and how we interact with nature, whilst using materials resourcefully," he wrote on his website.
Scroll through the photos to see this amazing treehouse, and be sure to head over to Gibbon's website for more information.
