Cool Treehouses from around the World

Showcasing some of the coolest tree houses you'll ever see including the world's largest treehouse. Since the mid 90's, recreational tree houses have enjoyed a rise in popularity in countries such as the United States and parts of Europe. This has been due to increased disposable income, better technology for builders, research into safe building practices and an increased interest in environmental issues, particularly sustainable living.



Did you want to live in a tree house when you were children growing up? What better way to sleep than directly under the branches of a protective tree gazing up at the stars above. And, while some tree houses are minimalist by their very small nature, today’s tree house architects have gone beyond small stature to include tree houses fit for hotel rooms, lodges and restaurants.








Some treehouses certailnly look more strucutally safer than others!


This follow cool treehouse is the amazing Yellow Treehouse Restaurant in Auckland, New Zealand. This architectural masterpiece is predominately used as a restaurant.








And here are some more crazy, cool and very unusual treehouses from around the world....






Treehouses rise to the ‘green’ challenge to become ideal tree homes that do little to no damage to its host tree.






























And finally....Swedish firm Tham and Videgard Hansson Arkitekter is the genius behind this incredibly cool and nearly invisible treehouse. Located in northern Sweden, the treehouse more specifically serves as a hotel. The mirrored glass walls provide what I can only imagine to be a stunning 360 degree view....cool!




The increase in popularity of tree houses has given rise to demand for businesses covering all building and design work for clients. There are over 30 businesses in Europe and the USA specializing in the construction of tree houses of various degrees of permanence and sophistication, from children's play structures to fully functioning homes.
