Do you want to build a tree house?
The “bird’s nest” Atami is actually a small teahouse in the canopy of an old camphor tree. To make the whole thing even more exciting – the unique Treehouse located in Japan, more specifically in Shizuoka Prefecture. Designed by the architect Hiroshi Nakamura, this dwelling is a real architectural jewel that somehow reminiscent of the blockbuster “Avatar”. An ecological concept that is at the same time persistent and resourceful. The inspiration for the actual building project came from the Animal Kingdom. The architect was fascinated of the creativity of the crows, especially when they build their nests. It very often happens that these clever birds sent work to different objects and integrate them into the nest construction. Hangers for example are very popular with crows. It sounds maybe somehow incredibly or unusual. Hangers are pretty handy for this purpose but, because they have not only a suitable for this form, but also a hook. So hangers in a very comfortable way are stuck together and the nest Gets a stable basis on which then can be developed very quickly.
So much was taken also for the Treehouse Atami. The structure consists of steel rods with a 3 cm in diameter, on which then the thick wooden planks were placed and mounted. Stable and at the same time barely visible staircase leads to the teahouse. Before entering the small, cosy terrace, where there is enough space for dining table and chairs first. Here, it feels exactly like a lucky bird in the jungle and spends like a long time.
So you can build an environmental tree house
However, the real highlight remains the tree house Interior. And this immediately impresses with its fairy-tale simplicity and lets every adventurous, romantic heart beat faster. Coarse natural wood texture and pleasant neutral shades please the eye and provide a feeling of security. You feel here like at home.
Back to nature! At the counter or on the sofa you can quietly enjoy a delicious Cup of tea and while relaxed is entertained, or meditate in silence – depending on how you feel now.
