Located in Rheinau Baden-Linx, Germany (right near the French border), World of Living is a rather unusual type of establishment. It was conceived to show off WeberHaus [3]‘ homes, but in a fun, interactive way – and you know we can’t be mad at that! The tree house [6]‘s main body rests on a structural system of seven oblique, conical shaped columns made of Siberian larch and greets visitors to the park with a taste of the innovation they’re about to see.

As exciting as the tree house [6]‘s exterior is, the inside is no less interesting. The vaulted interior welcomes visitors with wallpaper depicting giant oak leaves as if the house itself were a tree. In fact, the walls are all made of native oak. Tired guests can take a load off in rotating seats, and integrated roll cages and drawers can act as tables or storage. Two skylights and large windows daylight [7] the space and allow views in all directions over the park and into the tree crown.
