TORNADO TREEHOUSE

Roderick Romero proved that treehouses are not only for children, but also for celebrities. Romero has built some of the most amazing treetop constructions for the likes of Sting and Val Kilmer. More importantly, however, are his building materials. He uses reclaimed wood to craft his impressive “tornado” designs. The two-storey diamond-shaped structure is complete with an observation deck perfect for looking out to the surrounding nature.

ROOTED TREEHOUSE

This private children’s treehouse is a brilliant place for playing. Built up in the branches of an old oak tree in Extremadura, Spain, the mini-escape dubbed the Rooted Treehouse was designed by Urbanarbolismo and built nestled within a hundred year old tree and covered in a heather-like material and raw cork bark. With an aim of minimizing its impact on the tree which it sits, the designers have supported the deck with extra stabilizers that function like roots.

FINCA BELLAVISTA

A Costa Rican paradise, Finca Bellavista is a haven away from the chaos of the outside world where residents to focus on interacting with the treetop world around them. This canopy neighborhood is evolving with a community complex below, which includes a dining hall and lounge area that even has Wifi access (not so far removed from reality then!). Many more constructions are underway to develop the community further, and their “Sky Trail” transportation network is up and runningto give visitors incredible views of the canopy and river corridor.
