Anyone who feels comfortable in dense forests with tall trees and likes to spend moments of peace and relaxation undisturbed should definitely put this fascinating tree house made of wood, steel and glass on their wish list. The unique hut hovers 30 meters above the ground above the treetops of the magical red forests in California and blends in harmoniously with the surrounding nature.
The breathtaking tree house with a pine cone shape, weighing almost 5 tons, was designed by Dustin Feider for an international company for cleaning, hygiene and care products. This treehouse dream come true is located in Bonny Doon north of Santa Cruz in California and is available for around 132,000 euros. The price may vary depending on the installation costs at the respective location. Oakland-based O2 Treehouse has built more than 60 tree houses in the past 12 years. The fascinating tree house with 64 diamond-shaped windows can be rented via the Airbnb online platform for 250 euros per night.
The tree house made of wood, steel and glass was designed by the builder Fieder with the aim of giving guests the opportunity to connect harmoniously with the surrounding nature. The tree hut is clad with several diamond-shaped panels, which, thanks to their special arrangement, create the unique pine cone shape. The transparent facade offers guests a breathtaking 360-degree view of the dense forest roof.
The hut consists mainly of a geodesic frame made of wood and steel. The windows are clad with acrylic glass. The tree house with the pine cone design is attached to the trees in eight different places. The accommodation can accommodate a double bed or two single beds, which are located under a glass ceiling and surrounded by openings in the shape of petals.
As soon as you step into the interior, you immediately have the feeling that you are floating above the treetops, because the floor is also glazed. The pine cone tree house is accessible via a ladder. It is connected to a wooden walkway that leads to a separate bathroom. The bathroom has a shower, composting toilet and sink.
