Deep in the forests of Portugal’s Pedras Salgada Park lurk two serpentine structures designed to be the ultimate tree-houses
From a distance, those with active imaginations could easily mistake these structures for giant alien serpents slithering through the trees — fortunately, these spectacular sightings prove to be of a much tamer and more hospitable nature.
The two snake-like formations, aptly called Tree Snake Houses, are in fact holiday huts managed by the Pedras Salgada Spa & Nature Park. Designed by Portuguese architects, father and son duo Rebelo de Andrade Studio in collaboration with the Modular System construction company, these two serpentine accommodations are additions to the existing seven Eco Houses in the Park, also designed by Rebelo de Andrade Studio.
Stilted high into the trees and accessed via a long ramp, the single room cabins are a charming addition to the lodgings at the spa and nature park. Their designs were prefabricated by modular system and assembled on-site to help reduce the project’s impact on the park.
