New Tree Cabin Features Rooftop Deck & Top-Down Entry

Unlike its cousins, the means of support are attached at the top, with the cabin hanging from tree-connected steel beams. Likewise, an upper bridge leads to an entryway on the same level as the roof deck, with occupied spaces sitting below. Inside, the living room faces a fantastic view down the steep slope and up the next rise, while the bedroom behind likewise looks out on the forest surroundings but without being visible from the ground below.

Long windows along each side provide nearly 360-degree perspectives on what lies on all sides. Tree Houses. A dream treehouse · Sheepy Me.

Tree-Inspired House Has Green Canopy & Geothermal Roots. Concepts play a central role in architectural studio projects, but sometimes grow into real-life buildings as well Whether this ‘house tree’ was too literally developed or well-designed is still up for debate, though the sketched diagrams from Ignatov Architects are impressive either way.

Tree-Inspired House Has Green Canopy & Geothermal Roots

Trees have water-channeling and light-absorbing foliage, supported by branches that funnel nutrients to keep it alive … but that also preserve and serve to shelter what plants and animals lie below. Root systems provide underground stability but also draw sustenance from the earth. Like leaves, the upper layers of this home draw in solar energy and drain water toward a collection reservoir below – inside, real living greenery produces oxygen for inside the house (while selectively-tinted glass protects human inhabitants). Living and working areas are located with maximum access to light above, while sleeping and dining quarters are situated on the level below.

Tree Houses. Man builds ingenious treehouse elevator using a bike (Video) : TreeHugger. There's often an element of magic and fantasy when it comes to building treehouses, but probably not so much when it comes to climbing up all those steps to get into a treehouse, day in and day out... oof!

Fatigued of scaling up the ladder to the 30-foot high treehouse that he is currently constructing, Sandpoint, Idaho resident Ethan Schlussler created this neat bicycle-powered treehouse elevator. See it in action: Schlussler explains in his words why and how he made this contraption: I got tired of climbing a ladder six and a half million times a day, so I made a bicycle powered elevator to solve this problem.It was originally a 20-something speed bicycle, but first gear wasn’t slow enough, so I cut the large sprocket off the front, and welded it on the rear to get a lower gear. Baumraum Treehouses. Some of us think that our far off ancestors lived in the trees — and during our childhood, when our thoughts and memories are most pure, we yearn to climb trees growing in our gardens, in our parks, in our cities.

Baumraum Treehouses

As we get older, the urge to climb trees subsides as we ride elevators up to our offices in the sky and look out across the cities where we live. Yet occasionally, as we’re sealed up tight in our artificially climatic spaces, we long for a breath of fresh air. At a German company called baumraum an architect, a landscape architect, an arbologist, and a craftsman design modern, natural and solidly constructed treehouses. Each treehouse project is assessed individually.

Lofted Forest Home: Organic Curves & Natural Materials. Good things come to those who wait – particularly in a work of uniquely detailed and highly curved architecture.

Lofted Forest Home: Organic Curves & Natural Materials

Nearly a decade in the making, this structure by Robert Harvey Oshatz is much like a tree house – lofted toward the top of the canopy around it – only bigger, grander, more complex and curved than most any tree house in the world. The perimeter of the structure is pushed out into the forest around it, curving in and out to create views as well as a sense of intimacy with the coniferous and deciduous tree cover. The wood and metal detailing is incredible in its variety and customization – each piece designed to fit a particular form and function. Wood and stone carry naturalistic themes from the outside in and even the metal looks naturally rusted. The curved, organic mix of materials continues to the interior of this elevated forest home – a conceptual play on the fluidity and complexity of music (the source of inspiration for the architect and client in the design).
