This fantastic treehouse was created as an ad campaign for Yellow (New Zealand’s version of The Yellow pages). The concept was to built a tree top restaurant using only the resources listed in Yellow’s directories. Pacific Environments, the architecture firm behind this woodland structure, cite an onion, garlic clove, and cocoon as initial sources of design inspiration. The treehouse was built at a site just north of Auckland around an enormous 40 meter high and 1.7 meter in diameter (at the base) redwood tree. The bulb portion is set 10 meters off the ground, measuring nearly 10 meters wide by 12 meters high and is accessed via a suspended ramp partially composed of wood from dead trees found in the area. Sustainably grown pine and poplar were used to build out the majority of the remaining structure. All together this magical little pod accommodates 30 people at a time and, while the restaurant has since closed and ownership of the treehouse has passed on to the landowner, it currently may be rented out for small events such weddings, business meetings etc. Images by Lucy Gauntlett courtesy of the Yellow Treehouse/The Redwoods Treehouse.
