Once upon a time, treehouses were considered just a play room for kids, but lately they have been gaining popularity as vacation houses and even-full time homes. And for good reason, since itâ€™s hard to imagine a more fun way to live then up in a tree. The South African architecture firm Malan Vorster have recently completed this great example of treehouse architecture. It is located in a Cape Town, South Africa suburb. […]
Glamping in the forests of Dorset, England just got a lot more comfortable thanks to the recently constructed Woodsman’s Treehouse. Itâ€™s available to rent, and has a number of luxury features including a sauna and hot tub. So it offers campers a way to camp out in the woods, without actually having to rough it.
The Woodsman’s Treehouse sits on stilts and is wrapped around an oak tree. It was designed by Guy Mallinson and architect Keith Brownlie of Brownlie, Ernst and Marks. It took them five months to construct it, and they used mostly locally available materials to do so. […]
Geoff de Ruiter, a PhD student at the University of Northern British Columbia recently built his own tiny treehouse, which he called the Raven Loft. It is suspended 17 feet (5.1 m) off the ground and it cost him just $8,200 to complete, mostly since a lot of the materials used to construct the tree house were salvaged, reused, or repurposed. […]

The so-called Domâ€™Up is an innovative treehouse, which is easy to install, and has virtually no impact on the trees used to support it. It was created by Holland-based arborculturist Bruno de Grunne and architect Nicolas d’Ursel from the organization Trees and People. The treehouse can be used as an alternative to the classic treehouse, for glamping, or even as a treetop office, resort or even a cool restaurant.
The Toronto based firm Farrow Partnership Architects designed and built a unique, modern tree house, which is made from sustainable materials, and doesnâ€™t harm the tree in any way, or restrict its growth. The latter is made possible by the architectâ€™s novel approach of hanging the tree house from the trunk instead of nailing it to the tree.
