The Yellow Treehouse Restaurant


Ran across this stunning marvel over at inhabitat this morning. I'd like a smaller version of this for my backyard, please. This from the site:

"The new Yellow Treehouse Restaurant by New Zealand based Pacific Environments Architects Ltd. (PEL) is a stunning architectural feat perched high above a redwood first. Appearing for all the world like an enormous chrysalis grafted onto a 40-meter-high redwood tree, the project is constructed of plantation poplar slats, redwood balustrading milled at the site, and makes extensive use of natural lighting throughout."

  1. Paul, you can build one just like it -- with contractors from your Yellow Pages Telephone Book. It was a marketing gimmick. And lord knows they need one, it's them vs Google.

  2. Rachel - Yeah. I hate the phone book as much as the next tree-hugging commie and there are some serious questions that this project raises. Still, love the design though.
