As its customers often wanted to define it, ORIGIN is an exceptional cabin, a unique and tailor-made project. A hundred-year-old oak, one of the most beautiful and tall of the domain of the Château de Raray, was the starting point for the whole reflection: how to sublimate the tree? Creating around it a tailored wooden-dress.

建筑项目理念   CONCEPT


The architectural challenge for Atelier LAVIT was to create a functional and comfortable hotel room, being faithful to the first inspiration of the project: a bird-nest.


The design of the cabin, coupled with the construction techniques, led to a rationalization of the assembly logic of the branches collected by the birds to create their impre-gnable shelters.


Meeting point between poetry and carpentry mastery, ORIGIN tree house discreetly stands out among the centenarian oaks of the Château de Raray forest, as if it had always been part of the scenery.Majestic and elegant, it integrates and completes an already impressive landscape, sublimating it by offering a shelter.

房屋的联结   ACCESS


The access is a sequence: passing first from a platform suspended on another tall oak thirty meters away, which includes a heated spa and a chilling area. Then a wooden walkway, ten meters from the ground, leads you straight into the heart of the nest.



A wooden ladder invites you to continue the ascent in close contact with the tree, to find with wonder a large 360 ° panoramic roof-terrace. A belvedere on the oak forest of the domain, as surprising as unexpected because it’s hidden by the exterior wooden cladding.

庭院   PATIO


The octagonal plan organizes the space around the oak trunk, incorporating it into the inhabited volume as the protagonist of the space that is the entrance to the tree house. Once in the patio a feeling of protection reigns as in a nest, with an easy access to the living area thanks to two large sliding glass doors.

鸟巢式房屋建筑   NEST


A cosy, bright and intimate atmosphere fills the space thanks to the large windows.The inner lining of the wall is made out of poplar, a light and clear wood essence with a subtle scent. The smooth, flat interior walls are mat-ched by the custom-made furniture surfaces, worked with fine horizontal slats, in a simple game of geometric volumes.


Around the patio the living spaces develop in succession; from the entrance to the living area and the sleeping area, till a narrow corridor with three sliding doors that give access respectively to a dressing room, a well equipped bathroom and a technical closet. Each one of the living spaces faces the large windows overlooking the forest, offering a mid-air view on the foliage of the centennian oaks of the domain.
