    More Alternative Houses: Treehouses in Sweden

    I have been focusing on alternative houses before, here some further treehouses, bringing the childhood dreams of many into reality.

    Hanging about 4-6m up in a tree - visually blends into the forest nicely, but from a material point of view it may me fragile depending of the used material, likely not glass. I also wonder of the windows, whether light enters the space. The entry and access isn't illustrated either, so . . .

    This approach combines the landart aspect into to the building, and does a much nicer task blending not just visually but also conceptionally better into the forest. Question is, where does the light come from (the top?), and where are the windows?

    The second image on the right shows some circular windows . . . not sure if it's sufficient since the forest is a shade place by itself, and direct and ambient light rather low.

    A more traditional and realistic approach of a treehouse: stairs to reach the building, sufficient windows to bring light into building and let the inhabitants see the forest.
