From reliving the childlike magic of exploring the great outdoors with endless imagination to embracing a more sustainable lifestyle, treehouses are rooted in a transformative history. The structures featured in a new tome, Treetop Hideaways: Treehouses for Adults (Rizzoli), are, however, a branch up from the childhood playroom you may have had. Author Philip Jodidio explores more than 36 treetop structures across the globe and shares insight into their designs, construction and environments.
This treehouse tour ranges from a hexagonal shelter in Mystic, Connecticut, to a Mongolian-inspired sanctuary in a cypress tree in Spicewood, Texas. Jodidio showcases a unique selection of treehouse interpretations along with the benefits of eco-friendly living and the stylish possibilities within these residences.
