Malan Vorster : 本次的树屋旨在设计一个小型的当代住宅，作为场域中现存建筑群的完善及补充，建筑群的布局围绕沃夫角（Cape Werf）空间的现代诠释展开。
Malan Vorster : The purpose of this tree house is to design a small contemporary residence as a complement to the existing buildings in the field. the layout of the buildings revolves around the modern interpretation of cape werf space.
The plane layout of the tree house structure explores the pure geometric form of a square. Each side of the square is divided into three modules. The length of the two modules determines the diameter of the circle extending from each side, forming a windmill-like layout.
Inspired by the trees in the site, the client requested a small wooden house with only one hidden bedroom. The main body of the building is located in a small open space in a forest-like lush garden. It responds to the vertical direction of the surrounding trees with its architectural shape. At the same time, it also makes the cabin the highest part of the entire base and maximizes the visible scenery.
The tree house has become a vertically arranged ” open space in the forest”. the living room is located on the first floor, the bedroom is located on the second floor, and the roof platform is located on the third floor. The machine room is located on the ground floor below the whole building. The space inside the semi-cylinder is used for patios, dining pavilions and stairs on the living room floor, for bathrooms on the bedroom floor, and for a row of embedded seats on the roof platform. the pure geometry clearly divides the space. A small part of the building is grounded, and people enter the interior through a suspended wooden and weather-resistant steel structural slope.
