Panoramic small treehouse – a childish idea in an adult manner

With modern architectural techniques and a trend towards living in nature, a small tree house has become more than just a child’s dream, but a creative way to organize an outdoor recreation area for the whole family.

It is also suitable for a couple – here a secluded, romantic setting is literally integrated with wildlife. The corresponding solution was proposed by the architect Jan Turpekl. The building is located in a private garden near Prague.

The architect has combined the idea of a children’s house with contemporary architectural techniques, turning it into an ergonomic view space. Instead of a closed wooden room with small windows, he presented an open oval structure, in which continuous panoramic glazing was made instead of walls.

This technique provides an unobstructed view of the private garden from the treehouse. With an area of only 39 square meters, it looks light and spacious. The border between space and environment is practically erased. The effect of being in the middle of a picturesque garden is created.

And in order to achieve privacy, the house has thick curtains along the entire height of the panoramic windows. Using them, the room can be completely localized in a visual context. Closing the curtains, the open view living room turns into a cozy romantic bedroom with a spacious bed and a fireplace.

The structure consists of two independent wooden planes – the base and the roof. They are united by a solid glass form. It is designed in such a way that tree trunks are made of glass outside the room. The effect of lightness is created, and it seems that the building is hanging in the air.

To climb into the house, instead of traditional steps, a stepladder was made, leaning against a wooden frame. In general, it was built like a hut, but at the same time, modern comfort, beauty and ergonomics of the space have been achieved here.

The main element of the interior of the small tree house is the fireplace. It is located centrally with a circular hood extending from the ceiling. At the same time, everything inside is arranged as simply as possible. There is a bed and some creative armchairs so that there is an opportunity to get together by the fireplace or at the table.

Awesome Tree Houses

With a modern approach to architecture, tree houses have become far from just a childhood dream, but a reality for adults who want to plunge into an unusual romantic atmosphere. The project of the architectural bureau Utreras Arquitectos is a small temporary shelter for recreation in the forest.

The peculiarity of the object is that it is a compact group of houses with a total area of 79 sq.m. They are small duplex rooms made of wood with a fabulous setting – latticed and round windows, neat wooden furniture and a completely ecological environment.

Compact tree houses as part of nature

One gets the impression that these are fabulous objects created by the hands of forest dwellers. They seem to have grown in the forest and formed a shelter for those who come here to admire the beauty and enjoy living surrounded by birdsong, rustle of leaves and murmur of rivers.

You can watch what is happening outside the houses through small round windows in the bedroom area or wide openings in the social space. This setting is particularly mysterious and romantic. You feel yourself in a secluded, safe place, hidden from the hustle and bustle, and anxiety.

The houses resemble bird nests, connected by passages. Due to the bridges, they form a single object. Resting here with a company or family, you can always conveniently walk from one house to another.

Unique style of tree houses with a stunning atmosphere

There is not even a hint of modern style here. Everything is arranged as an ancient or even fabulous refuge from the city noise. The facades are finished with almost untreated cypress wood.

All walls, partitions and structures in the house are also made of natural wood with minimal processing. But the surfaces are safe for use, they have pleasant tactile qualities and smoothness.

Installation on piles made it possible to build houses without interfering with hilly terrain. For traditional cottages, labor-intensive earthworks would have to be carried out here. And these cozy, stunning in appearance tree houses did not require leveling the site. This also affected the color of the housing – just beyond the threshold you have an untouched forest.

Uniquely Designed Cylindrical Tree House by Malan Vorster Architecture Interior Design

Inspired by the trees on the estate, the client requested a one-bedroom hut-style shelter resembling a tree house. The property is set in a small clearing among forest-like gardens to maximize the view from the highest part of the site. The center of each circle is the location for the column, and the circular rings that support the floor joists at the top are connected to the columns using branches. Each ring defines a semicircular auxiliary space to the main square living space at that level. The building becomes a vertically positioned “clearing in the forest” with living space on the first level, a bedroom on the second level and a roof on the third.

Treehouse for kids – 15 m² of children’s happiness

There are many things that every child dreams of. And these are not only beautiful toys, a modern tablet. Being small, the baby wants to have his own space where he will feel like a real master. Guys are always looking for a staff … so why not give your child a treehouse for children. This is a unique idea that will bring a lot of pleasure, joy and unlimited happiness.

A complete house for a little owner

The wooden shelter shown in the photo was designed by Madeiguincho architectural bureau on an area of 15 sq.m. This hill has become a real secluded place for children who can not only play fun, but also hide from adults to share their ideas, come up with an interesting game.

The original building is made of sip panels and a cedar roof. Natural materials give the house a special atmosphere of freshness, and the pleasant color of the texture favorably affects the children’s psyche. The design feature is that a tree passes through the space, which fills it with wildlife.

Tree house construction

In the design of the structure, it was important to take into account the main criteria:

  • Reliability;
  • Security;
  • Favorable texture;
  • Easy to read design.

All these parameters were successfully embodied in an amazing place where children can not only play a long distance, but also spend more time in the fresh air. For the construction, a planed beam was chosen, which makes the external and internal appearance solid and light.

The layout provides for a lot of free space where you can run, jump, read, conduct developmental classes. Another plus of such a separate place is that the child can feel independence, because here the owner is only he alone.

Maximum lighting

When planning to build a playhouse for children made of wood, a very important factor was provided for – lighting. In space, natural light is used along with lighting fixtures. To do this, there is a special glass hole on the roof from where natural lighting comes in – the sun, stars, the moon.

The side of the house is made of burned and treated with linseed oil bars. This type of layout also provides natural ventilation. The window for natural light is directed to the east-west side, so that children can enjoy the sunset and sunrise.

From all sides, the house is filled with warmth, rays of the sun, which certainly gives a good mood and charges with positive emotions. This is what children need, at the stage of their development and perception of the world around them.

House exterior

The concept of choosing a natural tree for the construction of a treehouse for children has been chosen for good reason. There is no plastic or brick. Only a natural and environmentally friendly finish that favorably affects the health of the baby. Such a performance instills a love of nature, allows you to enjoy the aroma of wood, teaches you to appreciate the world.

For convenience and safety, a small balcony is provided on both sides. The fence will not allow the child to fall out, and the trees passing through the base perfectly contrast with the general exterior. You can climb to the house on the stairs, which are also made of wood. It has steep steps, so it will be easy for children to walk without fear of heights.

Happy childhood in his corner

There is nothing better than watching the children rejoice and give a radiant smile every day. To do this, not so much … have your own little corner. In such a treehouse for children, the photo of which we see, the child can feel the distance from the city bustle. This concept has become relevant in the project. Here a little man can see, feel, contemplate the natural beauty.

In a small space, you can play with friends, read books with your parents, or just be alone.
