TREEHOUSE WITH SUSTAINABLE AND ECO-FRIENDLY DESIGN FEATURES
It Was Inspired By Mobula Rays
Playa Viva is an environmentally conscious resort located in El Calvario in Mexico. The resort is known for its green and sustainable practices as well as its work with local communities in helping restore the land. Recently, the resort has tapped a well-known design firm to make six bamboo tree houses that would serve as the resort’s extension. The result is a luxurious and eco-friendly accommodation inspired by Mobula Rays.
The tree houses consist of 1-2 bedrooms complete with an ensuite bathroom and lounging areas. All tree houses are made out of different types of bamboo except for its flooring which are made from local timber wood. The tree houses are perched on top of coconut palms and overlook the surrounding seas. They also incorporate bioclimatic designs to allow a sustainable living alongside nature.
Guests of the resort can truly enjoy a luxurious way of reconnecting with nature and the surrounding seas.
The treehouses are developed using bioclimatic design principles to suit the natural environment: the large eaves of the roof act like a big umbrella, providing shade for the strong heat of the sun and protection from heavy rains. The façade louvers allow for natural cross ventilation.
