Classy and quirky treehouses from around the world.
The treehouse in its most simple and fundamental form enables us to escape from the everyday pressures of modern life and feel closer to nature. It can also be an architectural wonder, showcasing the most creative of small space design, and used for businesses from restaurants to yoga retreats and sustainable housing solutions.
This beautiful book shows how the treehouse can be many things: from simple structures in tiny backyards to modern geodesic forms strung high up above the treeline. There is something magical about treehouses—whatever your age.
There are treehouses with woodburning stoves, some with four-poster beds, some with elevated walkways obscured by the canopy of trees above. Then there are the handmade simple structures using recycled materials and the branches of the trees for both internal and external support and design.
The Anatomy of Treehouses offers both visual inspiration and stories behind the creation of these treehouses. Details on the plan, structure, materials and decoration, color palette and texture, and style notes bring the stories to life.
