tree house lead This tree house will blow your mind (14 Photos)

In the forest of Portland, Oregon, Architect Robert Harvey Oshatz has built the world’s most amazing tree house. Every inch of the 2,368 square feet is built seamlessly into the surrounding landscape. Robert has been kind enough to give the CHIVE permission to use these photos. The house is really best described through the Architect’s own words:

A lover of music, the client wanted a house that not only became part of the natural landscape but also addressed the flow of music. This house evades the mechanics of the camera; it is difficult to capture the way the interior space flows seamlessly through to the exterior. One must actually stroll through the house to grasp its complexities and its connection to the exterior. One example is a natural wood ceiling, floating on curved laminated wood beams, passing through a generous glass wall which wraps around the main living room.

    Now that’s what I call a tree house.
    I’d be careful about having any candles in that place.

    Pretty sweet. Wonder how much $ and if it’s insurable.
    It would suck if the thing shifted and the all of those cool arches started cracking and falling apart.
