Designed by Mithun Architects, the Sustainability Treehouse isn’t a house but more like a structure built in ode to nature and green energy. Located in Glen Jean, West Virginia, the Sustainability Treehouse is constructed using steel frames and wood for ceilings, walls, and floors. It’s built in as an open structure to mend in with the surrounding nature, to remind people about the importance of environment.
The Treehouse provides dynamic educational and gathering spaces for exploring and understanding the site and ecosystem at the levels of ground, tree canopy, and sky. The structure houses exhibitions of sustainable energy techs available today so we can continually work in harmony with mother nature as mankind progresses further into the future. The towering Corten steel frame elevates visitors to extraordinary vantages and provides an armature for green building systems, such as photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, and a large cistern and water cleansing system. Interactive exhibits showcase and celebrate sustainable technologies.
