Treehouse by the Solling

View all 10 Photos

Designed and built by Baumraum architects, this treehouse stands on stilts, overlooking one of the client’s ponds. The site can be found nearby Uslar, Germany, in a valley neighboring the Solling hills. Once a forester’s property, the plot has been recently updated with two artificial ponds, newly planted indigenous trees, and, now, an ageless treehouse clad in larch wood and what looks like aluminum. The two-level treehouse is accessible from the hemlock spruce and ladder which connect the elevated walkway to the ground. An exterior staircase leads up to the second-floor bedroom, minimally furnished with a built-in bed and storage unit. Similarly, the lower level is outfitted with built-in benches, which allow visitors to sit as they admire the view through the windows and the domed skylight.
