Sterreschijter

This hanging metal structure looks like an oversized bucket or carriage. It is attached to a tree trunk by clamping and tensioning and has a translucent roof opening. Suspended a full six meters off the ground, the Sterreschijter can accommodate up to two people.

Love Nest

The Love Nest actually looks like a giant bird’s nest. Made of basic metal and clad in wood, this little room suspended four meters off the ground is reached by a ladder and features a portal window that permits natural light. The interior is lined with a light-colored faux leather.

The Lotus

Possibly one of the most unique of all, the Lotus looks like a giant ball or lantern but then it folds out like a flower. Suspended at four different points, making it perfectly secure, this room seems to float four meters above the ground. Remarkably, this room comfortably accommodates up to four people.
