As avant-garde architecture goes, this ‘pinecone’ treehouse pushes the envelope on a micro scale.
The five-and-a-half ton geodesic cabin is the brainchild of Oakland’s O2 Treehouse and is constructed from steel, wood and glass. It is suspended 30-ft above the ground, between towering redwood trees in Bonny Doon, California.
Some 64 diamond-shaped windows and transparent floors that provide views down to the forest floor. A mini treehouse structure is set at ground level housing a bathroom, with composting toilet and shower.
The treehouse is available from $350 per night via Airbnb. But for guests looking to extend their stay can own their own Pinecone Treehouse, for around $150,000.
