The Spreebogen treehouse is a rounded, metallic cabin located on the bank of the river Spree, which is the brainchild of an entrepreneur who saw the potential of the Spree river location for his business and a marina at one of the old river ports in Berlin, Germany
The Spreebogen treehouse project was conceived by an entrepreneur who saw the potential of the Spree river location for his business and a marina at one of the old river ports in Berlin, Germany. The port has meanwhile been redeveloped and several yachts, houseboats, and a floating hostel are moored there. A magnificent weeping willow directly on the edge of the embankment inspired him to build a treehouse.
The result is a rounded, metallic cabin direct on the bank of the river Spree. The treehouse is anchored by a combination of supports and cables connected to the willow, thus spreading the load of the rear of the cabin and stabilizing the cabin’s horizontal position. The outer shell of the cabin is clad with 3 mm stainless steel sheeting, which was cut using digital laser technology.
The interior of the treehouse is furnished with a bedding area for 2-3 people, a sofa, and a folding table or workspace. The white walls and ceiling and the high-gloss coated fitted furniture lend the cabin an atmosphere of light and elegance. The flooring and the furniture edging are finished with oak.
