Tree Hoose, 
Taigh a Chnuic, Ullapool

"A Serene lochside treehouse in Scotland from your wildest dreams...every detail of the open-plan treehouse has been meticulously considered. For a small space it packs a lot...Underfloor heating, wi-fi and a hotel standard loo and shower mean we are very much living in comfort ."

Natasha Radmehr. The Times 16/10/21 


The tiny, self contained 'Tree Hoose'  at Taigh a Chnuic was engineered by Echo to be airlifted onto the steep, woodland site overlooking Loch Broom in the Highlands of Scotland. 


The  prefabricated structure is composed of five individual sections, each one engineered to weigh less than 1 tonne. Air lifted on to the platform, each of the sections were then assembled to form an open plan space complete with self contained accommodation. 

Each of the four activity spaces- the built in double bed, kitchen,  shower room , sitting room -  are arranged around the central space with wood burner.   Two central roof lights and large picture windows to each space  frame the views of the  woodland, the loch and mountains beyond.  A small balcony of the sitting room 

The Nordpan walls and timber finishes  provide a warm backdrop for  a classical  monochrome interior in black and grey finishes. Origin doors entrance and the other to a balcony 

Fixtures and fittings include a convertible window seat/ daybed; built in double bed;  kitchen unit with black Formica ColorCore worktop, black sink  and tap, hob and oven, and under counter fridge.


The fully fitted shower room has  floor to ceiling window with floating console in black  Formica ColorCore;   Arezzo curved basin and high rise tap tap in black; Swift micro venetian blinds in Flint grey; and back to wall WC. 


Light fittings include a pair of Anglepoise Original 1227 hanging lights in grey over the  bed; Nordlux Strap Lights in black  to  the central space; and Nordlux Sway 11 pendant lights to the  kitchen unit. Recessed LEDs are positioned throughout. 

The  dramatic Tree Hoose exterior is clad in random width, black stained Siberian Larch with black corrugate tin panels.
