Traditional wood Treehouses have a way of firing up the imagination and bringing out the kid within - but wait till you see the latest creation by German design firm Baumraum. Their colorful new Baumquadrat tree-top dwelling is as architecturally refined as the finest modern prefab, and it's a playground for kids and adults alike - just without all the splinters.
The Baumquadrat (Tree Cube) is a small room in the trees that can be used for relaxing, sleeping and playing. Depending on the size and stability of the trees in your backyard, the structure can stand on stilts or be suspended in the trees. The cube measures 2.30 x 2.50 x 2.50 meters with 80mm thick walls, and the interior and exterior façade is paneled with larch wood.
Baumraum recommends that the Baumquadrat be installed about 3 meters above ground, and it can be assembled out of several modules. The ladder rails are made of galvanized steel with larch rungs, while the roof is topped with sheet metal.
Thanks to its high level of insulation and strong structure, the treehouse can be used throughout the year regardless of the weather. It’s the perfect place for afternoon siestas during the summer or a cozying up in the winter.
