Rainforest Keep

Rainforest Keep is a small tower of joy embedded in the tropical rainforest. Attracted to gritty, organic forms and pavilion style living, the client was initially interested in a round house, which grew into a simple curved form with a leaf shaped roof for economic and structural simplicity. The patterns in the window framing and structure mirror the vertical elements of the rainforest, and a green wall envelopes the mass of the keep from the road. The tower will be complimented in the future by two small single storey pods connected by walkways to the keep.
