Antony Gibbon’s Inhabit Treehouse Lets You Sleep High Up in the Trees

Architect Antony Gibbon has distinguished himself as a master treehouse designer. Earlier this week, we showcased Gibbon's Roost treehouses; now, we've received renderings of another one of Gibbon's innovative treehouses. The Inhabit treehouse has a more contemporary form than his Roost treehouses, and it would make for an ideal treetop getaway that has a low impact on the surrounding forest.
Inhabit is a contemporary structure with a very sleek and minimalist design. It can be built in a variety of different settings depending on the site. Antony Gibbon Designs respect nature and insists on developing treehouse solutions that have very little impact the natural environment.
The entrance to this retreat structure is from below and allows for the design to feel much more like a watchtower to the surrounding environment. The treehouse sleeps up to six people depending on the design layout. Cedar cladding wraps the structure, while large viewing windows allow the occupants to watch nature change around them. The windows also provide for a large amount of natural lighting. Alas, like the Roost treehouse, this one is still on the drawing board, but we’d love to see it get built.
