A man on a tree

with 2 comments

Mr. KP Singh from Udaipur is a delightful engineer with a gleaming Colgate smile. When his clients came to him with a plot of land with a Mango tree in the middle, he refused to cut down the tree and convinced the client to build a Tree house. The structure that developed around the tree is a series of small cozy enclosures, with branches jutting out from the walls around. The Tree itself is load bearing structure and the house is designed specifically to deal with the local winds.

“My name is KP Singh, Kulpradip Singh, this is the house which i built eight years back, It has become a place of inspiration for many to realise that the tree can provide them not only the shelter but also the pleasure of living with the living thing.”   –  KP Singh
