Sheltree is one of the winning projects of the Geneva Light & Trees Festival, which takes place during the Christmas period.
The festival’s purpose is to decorate existing trees in the city with installations.
The presence of trees and green spaces in cities is very important.
In the summer, trees offer natural shelters for those who need to escape from the sun.
In the winter, as trees lose their leaves, they also lose their ability to shelter.
The installation conceived by Allegory allows the tree to regain its lost function.
At night, the structure glows and magnifies the beauty of the tree during the season holidays.
Allegory is a Geneva (Switzerland) based architecture and design studio. Art Director, Albert Schrurs, is an EPFL grad. Architect and an ECAL MAS Luxury grad. Designer.
