Designed by Adil Azhiyev and Ivan Kudryavtsev of Light+Space to help alleviate the problems of suburban sprawl with a site-sensitive vertical structure composed of two design elements — a central core containing an elevator and stars, and a lofted series of prefab housing modules. Like the trunk of a tree the core serves as the base, while the housing modules are stacked one on top of the other to create a tower of alternating cubes and activated space.
Although prefab residential skyscrapers such as this has been explored in the past, the design of the T-Tree is thoroughly dynamic, modern, and convenient. Each prefabricated housing module includes a full range of built-in facilities, including furniture, toilets, showers and kitchens. Each encapsulated living space is powered by additional modules containing energy generating wind turbines found on the top of each tower. These produce 25% of the structure’s required energy.
