Designed by Luciano Pia, this incredible treehouse located in “a small forest” of Turin, Italy. With an attempt to evade Turin’s homogeneous urban scene and integrate life into the facade of the residential building, this building looks like a steel infrastructure covering the facade in massive pops of green foliage.

Most of us loves treehouse but it takes too much to build one by ourselves. To have similar treehouse kind experience, tree house architect Alex Shirley-Smith designed Tentsile, a portable suspended tree house that you can take anywhere. This innovative product has the comfort and versatility of a hammock and multi-person occupancy of a tent. It is fully waterproof, UV resistant, and comes with insect mesh roofs. There really is no better way to make camp and hang out in nature. The only problem I can see is it might take some effort to hang the tent in the air and not sure how much hurt will cause to the trees.
Built by a Canadian software developer Joel Allen, this tiny HemLoft treehouse was built using mostly recycled materials and located in the woods of Whistler. The treehouse is shaped like an egg. Of course, it can’t be that spacious but with well organized, it has plenty of room to spend a few nights under the stars, enjoying everything the great outdoors has to offer. However, the hemloft was built on crown land and is kinda of illegal. Joel kept this project a secret for three years, but he eventually contacted Dwell Magazine, which was the first publication to break the story. After all the effort Joel made and support people gave, owner of Canadian Wilderness Adventures (CWA) Allan Crawford has agreed to house the egg-shaped structure on the tour company’s tenure in the Callaghan Valley.
