Living the Highlife

Blue Forest as Architects

This upscale treehouse project is designed for luxurious family living. It features two separate lofty retreats, one for the children and one for their parents. The complex features a dramatic canopy walkway, an adventure play area and an assault course. The design brief was to provide an aerial complex for family enjoyment and an unusual venue for entertaining friends.


The adult treehouse has a beautiful conical thatched roof, and its walls are clad in hand-split oak shingles and cedar tongue-and-groove boards. The interior features a kitchen, toilet, and a large living area for treetop dinner parties. The children’s treehouse consists of three medieval towers connected to the adults treehouse by several rope bridges. Inside the kids treehouse a secret trapdoor leads into a games room, complete with plasma television and game console. An eighty-yard zip wire delivers the children to an exciting assault course.
