Our proposal for the site, which faces Lower Lough Erne and Lough Navar forest beyond, includes 3 Tree-Hotels standing amongst the trees for a high-end holiday resort. Accessed via a meandering timber walkway, the Tree-Hotels are elevated to maximise the beautiful panoramic views of the lake.

Finished in black-stained timber, and copper shingles that will weather green, the Tree-Hotels will further blend into the forest with time. Their large glazed openings, and hatches, allow guests the opportunity to interact with their natural surroundings. The angled roof forms house skylights, which provide glimpses of the tree canopies above and allow natural light to filter in through the trees.

Word from the architect

Each Tree-Hotel is comprised of separate volumes at staggered heights, evoking the wonder of a childhood tree-house and eliciting memories of climbing through the trees.
