Practical Tree-House Abodes
The House on Geul River by Upfrnt Features a Flood-Proof Design

By: Jana Pijak (Superstar) Sep 12, 13

The House on Geul River by Upfrnt is designed with a flood-proof concept in mind. This whimsical abode is located on the bank of the Geul River in South Limburg, the Netherlands and stands atop a raised stilt frame.

With both hand-built and pre-fabricated elements, this stunning tree-house abode was built to replace damaged homes that graced the site previously.
Because of the river’s frequent flooding, this structure is built on poles that are made from local wood materials.

Rising above flood waters, the House on Geul River features a sustainable design concept that includes solar heating and waste-water filtration and purification systems. The home features large windows that allow natural light in while its gorgeous cedar facade boasts the traditional Japanese Shou-Sugi-Ban technique.
