Who said tree houses were for kids?

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. It reminds me of the third year pavilion project, but to a much larger and intricate scale.

“The tree-house concept is reminiscent of childhood dreams and playtime, fairy stories of enchantment and imagination,” say PEL. “It’s the treehouse we all dreamed of as children but could only do as an adult fantasy.”
