Modern Tree House Offers a Cozy Minimalist Escape in the Woods

Built around two large oak trees, the Treehouse djuren was created as a comfortable retreat for a family on a wooded property in northern Germany. It was constructed by tree house designer Baumraum and features an eye-catching, egg-shaped silhouette book-ended by two oval windows and a glossy white facade. The rest of its modern exterior is a combination of wood and zinc metal, which gives this small structure a minimalist feel as its supported by four steel rods.

The cozy and inviting interior space includes sleeping benches covered in gray felt set against medium-colored wood planks. In addition, there are plenty of windows that provide gorgeous, unobstructed views of the treetops and bathes you in natural light.

To access this getaway, you climb two ship ladders that are separated by upper and lower wooden decks. The trees pierce the terraces and bear their weight, which sits as high as 18 feet. Like the other treehouses we've admired before, this small dwelling provides a fantastic escape from the outside world.
