The Baumhaus World of Living is almost more about the terrace space than it is about the treehouse itself. Built for the Adventure Park World of Living by Weber Haus, it was constructed in the construction company’s apprentice workshop and features seven oblique, conical-shaped supports made of Siberian larch. Inside, the walls are lined in a tree-printed wallpaper where word games and informational text blocks are hidden within the leaves.

Perhaps the most rectilinear of all Baumhaus’ structures, this Prague treehouse has two staggered-height terraces supported by ‘belt loops’ of rope around the limbs of an oak. Two steel columns support the back end of the structure to avoid putting too much stress on the tree.

These four secluded 13-meter-long cabins were designed as part of the first tree house hotel in North Germany. While each environmentally friendly cabin gets support by 14 irregularly arranged tubular steel columns, each of the cabins’ terraces is suspended in a nearby tree.

Meditation Treehouse

The Meditation Treehouse, built in an old chestnut tree near Rome, is appropriately zen-like in its simplicity. The terrace features cut-outs for the tree’s limbs and leads to a minimalist wooden room made for relaxation and reflection.
