Tree Houses - The Height of Fashion

Tree houses - Don't believe they are just for kids : the new generation of tree houses are imaginative, sophisticated and architecturally daring.

Early man built houses in trees for his own safety. Today treehouses are seen as perfect playthings for children but historically they were made for adults.

Roman emperors saw them as places for dining and entertaining. In the 16th century, the Medicis did the same adding witty water tricks to surprise guests. In the Romantic period, Johann Rudolf Wyss's popular novel of 1813, The Swiss Family Robinson, in which the shipwrecked family made their home in a tree house, provided inspiration for treehouses for at least a century.

The tree top retreats of the Parc Robinson in Plessis outside Paris included a restaurant in one of the largest trees, where food was delivered to the diners in baskets raised by pulleys.

Perhaps the most common reason for building a treehouse is delight. Their construction currently flourishes as never before, possibly due to the general trend towards having an outdoor office or garden room.
