Freshome Home Best Of 35 Lovely Pathways for a Well-Organized Home and Garden 35 Lovely Pathways for a Well-Organized Home and Garden Garden pathways and alleys are usually envisioned for organizational purposes, for getting from one point to another in the easiest possible way.

For many kids, a treehouse is a time honored tradition of growing up. Making rules as to who is allowed up in the tree perch is just one part of the fantasy land where they get to live… a land like the cartoons or movies, full of magical imaginations running wild. Even as adults, the idea of a peaceful getaway in the canopy of a lush forest is an appealing departure from the concrete that surrounds life in towns and cities. This unusual tent-like treehouse , looking a lot like something friendly Ewoks would have relaxed in during Return of the Jedi, is the perfect example of one of these magical, childlike places. Tentsile has engineered a treehouse for adults that can be strung up easily in the enchanted forest of your choosing.
Building an eco-friendly home in the middle of a forest sounds like a paradox: Chances are that in the process you’ll have to cut down some trees.

The newest center on the roster is a flying-saucer-like pavilion proposed by Snøhetta that, funding withstanding, is expected to set down in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Bercy Chen Studio has sent us photos of the Shore Vista project, a two story boat dock located on a bend in Lake Austin, Texas, USA, across from Canyonland Nature Preserve. Describing their structure, the architects say: “the site is suggestive of the elliptical form that maximizes the beautiful views of the undulating hills beyond”. “The rounded edges of the dock peel away, allowing more of the landscape to be captured into the visual frame.” Photos by coursey of Bercy Chen Studio Source: Bercy Chen Studio <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
