Hidden in the hills of Portland, Oregon, artist Devan Anthony recently completed construction of this modern treehouse that he calls a ‘Cantilevered Contemplation Platform.’ Sited on a steep hillside overlooking a small wooded valley, the meditation perch sits 25′ up a stout Douglas Fir tree. The platform is designed to connect the viewer with the beauty and fragility of life, and therefore has no railing, just a low grab bar on each side of the deck.
