Dom’Up takes camping in the trees to new heights

domup

(From Gizmag) Dutch arboriculturist Bruno de Grunne and architect Nicolas d’Ursel from Trees and People have invented a new suspension style cabin called Dom’Up. This innovative treehouse draws inspiration from tree camping and traditional treehouse structures. The end result is a tree shelter that’s reported easy to install and leaves no trace or impact on its surrounding environment and trees.

Dom’Up features a lightweight 16 sq m (172 sq ft) octagonal platform which is suspended between two trees, utilizing Trees and People’s No Trace arboreal fixing system.

The Dom’Up comes equipped with a UV-resistant double canvas tent shelter, protective roofing made from durable thermo-welded tarpaulin, a large terrace and an open interior space which can be used for a bedroom or living space. By simply moving the bed to the terrace users can enjoy a night under the stars or simply keep the bed inside, zip up the tent and enjoy a cosy night among the treetops.

The structure of the Dom’Up is made from galvanized steel, natural wooden flooring and external railing has been flat fitted around the shelter for additional security. The wooden floor boards can be removed during the winter or rainy periods and easily reinstalled in time for Spring. Access to the treehouse is either by an easy-to-use wooden ladder with hand rails or specifically designed stairs or a suspension bridge, depending on the landscape.

Dom’Up is available for purchase worldwide and can be easily installed by a member of the Trees and People network or any arborist. The cost of the Dom’Up excluding installation is €25,000 (US$28,215).
