'Woodnest' Cabins Are Tiny Tree Houses in This Norwegian Forest

Each abode sits perched on a single tree and attaches to the trunk via a steel collar. This eliminates the need for additional structures below, and all that's visible is the still-growing pine tree that pierces the cabins. This minimally invasive approach was carefully designed by Helen & Hard Architects to respect the existing land and steep topography.

The resulting method allows the cabins to float approximately 15 to 20 feet off of the ground, leaving the natural forest untouched. Helen & Hard's ecological approach resulted from a shared view with clients Sally and Kjartan Aano, who also felt that the cabins must respect the forest. The site is not accessible by car. Though tiny, every inch of the 160 square-foot interior space is cleverly organized. The Woodnest cabin is proof that incredible design does not always mean soaring spaces.

Antony Gibbon Designs has produced a new treehouse design, The Embryo, which is a cylindrical two-story tree structure that almost looks like an extension of the tree trunk, like a burl. This image reinforces the notion that our homes should be an extension of Mother Nature. “The Embryo derives its name from the early stages of development in nature and how we need to re address the way we live in today’s society that is more ecological and simpler way of living than consuming our earth’s resources,” explains Gibbon. “We are more and more being disconnected from our natural surroundings and the embryo is part of a series of designs to try and reunite and reconnect us back to the elements and how we interact with nature, whilst using materials resourcefully.”

The entrance to The Embryo is similar to its predecessors. A Tree House That Is Both A Hotel And A Natural Sanctuary.

This hideout is built along the tops of the trees, like a sanctuary in the middle of a sancturary. With the idea of creating a true self sustained community, the project started by buying the land with that idea of sustainability in mind. The name is inspired by the picturesque river called Bellavista, with beautiful white waters, surrounded by abundant green where people can take a daily plunge and enjoy its currents. Their goal was to integrate the structure in the landscape, the tree tops create the border of these structures where people can stay and live different experiences surrounded by nature and Costa Rica's beautiful spaces. via LaBioGuía Recent articles.

If a treehouse is designed poorly it is easy to cause damage to the tree, but by following some simple guidelines you can minimise damage as much as possible. It is impossible to cause no damage at all, but trees have evolved several techniques to tolerate damage and remain healthy. As trees are living organisms, they differ from familiar building materials in the following four ways. They can be infected by bacteria and viruses, causing loss of branches or death to the whole tree They slowly grow larger over time, increasing the diameter of their trunk every year They use a process called compartmentalisation to isolate damaged or infected areas They will compensate for a changed weight distribution.
