A Modern Treehouse Built Around an Oak Tree

We’ve seen the magic that architect Andreas Wenning of German firm baumraum can make amongst the trees, and this particular treehouse finds itself wrapped around a large oak tree. The treehouse is situated 11 meters off the ground and offers a cozy retreat to sleep and relax when the homeowner’s want to get away.


It’s placed behind a residence and it’s accessed through the garage on the property. Peep the small window/door on the roof of the garage?


A steel staircase spirals around the massive tree granting access to the modern treehouse.


Two steel poles support the structure and keep it firmly attached to the tree.


A door built into the deck opens to let you enter.


A good-sized deck greets visitors once you reach the top and gives them a nice place to rest while enjoying the view.


Inside there’s a double bed fitted within the domed shape. You won’t feel claustrophobic thanks to the multiple windows that are installed.


On the opposite side there’s a window seat in front of another window.
