Robert McLaughlin’s ‘Landscape Apertura [2]‘ treehouse near Kansas City, offers calculated views into nature via six strategically placed, vibrant green frames. Each frame is designed to capture a specific outlook, which enables one to appreciate and focus on a small perspective of the expansive great outdoors. As thoughtfully crafted as its outward gazes, Landscape Apertura [2] is constructed in a Lincoln-log fashion with  90% recycled wood sourced from surrounding deconstructed houses through Habitat For Humanity ReStore [3]. This whimsical treehouse is like a camera, permanently poised to capture nature at its most beautiful, and we’d love to snap up the views.
