Youth Wing Treehouse, Israel

Welcoming children and adults at the entrance to the Youth Wing for Art Education at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem is this minimailist modern treehouse.

The treehouse is anchored to a massive pine tree and features boards fixed to a light steel skeleton that creates a look of transparency from top to bottom. A soft rubber surface covers both the extensive root system and safely protects kids playing below from falls. At night, only the structure is lit to give the illusion of a floating house above the ground below.

Like what you see? The blueprints for this treehouse are available online for those interested in building their own at home. Something tells us the neighborhood kids would be more than happy to assist.
