The Treehouse by Baumraum

  • Posted by SHFT on November 27, 2012 in Architecture
  • There probably isn't a more appropriate symbol of childhood play and wonder than the tree fort. Now, German architecture firm Baumraum has created one for adults. The not-so imaginatively named "Treehouse," built in the forests of Belgium's Limburg province, features two cabins on different levels, connected by terraces and staircases and held above ground on 19 angled steel stilts. With high efficiency electrical work and a modern water purification system, the Treehouse was designed to have a minimal impact on the environment. 

    THE TREEHOUSE is a small architectural wonder equipped with state-of-the-art eco facilities located in the forests of Hechtel-Eksel. But above all, it is the ideal place for break-out sessions where businesses can brainstorm about the importance sustainability has in their company, why and how they can improve to build a better future for the planet. It is the perfect location for scientific research and relevant presentations.
