The tree house refers back to childhood and the search of a space that is your own that grants us refuge, and that is the scenario of adventures. It is constructed in glass to remember the innocence we have as children which fades over time, as the warmth of wood is now cunningly replaced by the coldness of glass. The house also invites on a reflection about the security and privacy requested from a constructed space, elements that are sometimes compromised by the misuse of space at the hand of the user itself or by factors inherent to the design, as is the case in this premeditated exercise.
