"A Room of One's Own"
Virginia Wolf said, “a woman must have money and a room of her own.” In 1929 she boldly proposed women’s independence and promoted their creative endeavors. Today most can relate to her desire for a quiet place to pursue thoughts and dreams. Not just for children anymore, the treehouse stands supreme, both a means of escape and a means of expression.

Takasugi-an is a tree tea house by Terunobu Fujimori. It translates,“a tea house too high”

Hanging in the trees, the Eco-ball is made of fiberglass and locally grown timbers. You may rent one of several spheres for your stay in the west coast rain forest of Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.

The Yellow Treehouse Restaurant was designed by New Zealand based 
Pacific Environments Architects Ltd. Made of poplar and redwood, the 
structure stands grafted to a Redwood tree 40 meters from the forest floor.


  1. I was thinking that I wouldn't want to be in one of these tree houses in an earthquake....but then thought....trees rarely fall down, so this concept of housing is a winner in my book!
