10 – Tree house restaurant
The Naha Harbor Diner in Okinawa, Japan, lies at the very top of a huge Gajumaru tree about 20 feet above the ground.
Sadly, that is not a real Gajumaru tree, it’s actually concrete.
Customers actually have to get in an elevator inside the trunk to reach the restaurant!
I don’t know about you but I would love to eat out in a tree house!?
How cool would it be to look out of the window up into the sky.
9 – Architect Tree House
There is always a place for fun and frivolity in architecture!
David Rasmussen, resident treehouse expert, designed and built this “treehouse” with log columns.
The framing materials of this treehouse are made up of either re-claimed or blown-down timbers.
The sheathing and siding are locally sawn white pine, and wavy edge cedar.
The pin foundation system used here was chosen for its minimal impact to root systems of the surrounding trees.
8 – Romantic Tree House
This Romantic Tree house in Yelm, Washington is 400 square foot!
It’s a brilliant getaway built on a horse farm.
It has a curved staircase that leads you to an Art nouveau door, into a finely finished interior of reclaimed fir.
It sleeps two people, has a sitting room, and looks over a pond.
How much would you love to have this at the bottom of your garden!?
7 – Tea house on stilts
Japanese professor of architecture Terunobu Fujimori built his boyhood dream in his father’s garden in 2004.
It’s a teahouse on stilt.
You may have to be as small as Alice in Wonderland to enter this abode.
As if something out of a Doctor Seuss book, this miniature house is perched upon two slim chestnut trees as if sitting upon a lake on stilts.
A project of Japanese designer Terunobu Fujimori, this tea house is located in Chino, Nagano Prefecture, Japan and is called, “Takasugi-an,” “a treehouse [built] too high.”
Continuing with the tradition of tea houses being constructed by their tea masters, Fujimori built this house for his own pleasure of sipping tea.
6 – Tree house restaurant
The Yellow Tree House by Pacific Environment Architects is built around a redwood tree, which is over 40m high and has a 1.7m diameter at its base, located north of Auckland, New Zealand. The structure is made of plantation poplar slats and used extensive natural lighting throughout. The tree house restaurant was built as a marketing promotion for New Zealand Yellow Pages.
It is around 10m wide and over 12m high with seating 10m off the ground. The kitchen and toilets are on the ground. It has the capacity to occupy 18 people with all the comforts such as bar, structural soundness, and unobstructed views into the valley.
The pod itself holds 30 guests either at seated tables or casual stand up.
5 – Spider leg tree house
The house resides at World of Living (Germany), a showspace/amusement park for sustainable housing company WeberHaus and greets visitors with its curvy body perched atop super skinny spider-like “legs”. The unusual shape and clean lines are signature Baumraum, and there are a lot of other cool features.
The vaulted interior welcomes visitors with wallpaper depicting giant oak leaves as if the house itself were a tree. In fact, the walls are all made of native oak. Tired guests can take a load off in rotating seats, and integrated roll cages and drawers can act as tables or storage. Two skylights and large windows daylight the space and allow views in all directions over the park and into the tree crown.
4 – Wilkinson Residence Tree home
This beautiful tree home was designed in 1997 and completed in 2004
Architect, artist, magician, Robert Harvey Oshatz is all of that and so much more!
He is the organic architect responsible for this magnificent home up in the canopy; the coolest house in the trees that you will likely ever see.
The unique Wilkinson Residence graces the wooded landscape outside of Portland, Oregon. You will more than likely have a twinge of desire to live in it.
3 – Colourful Tree Houses
How beautiful is this tree house!?
Well, the many different tree houses.
With so many pretty colours up in the tree tops it looks like a fairy tale!
The rope ladder looks very interesting too. I don’t think I would just play in this, I would live in it!
It looks like something you would find in a Disney film. Alice In Wonderland or something.
So pretty and cheerful.
2 -Alnwick Garden Treehouse
This massive structure is located in the UK’sAlnwick Garden and was completed in 2005.
Due to the house’s size, a network of wooden braces must support it, so it’s not a treehouse in the traditional sense of the word.
However, it stretches high into the treetops and several trees grow right through the floor and up past the roof.
The building is home to a restaurant that serves gourmet local food.
1 – Bedroom Treehouse
Every child loves a tree house!
But now days with the hectic lifestyle and apartment homes, many kids are deprived of this wonderful experience.
