Spring is here, birds are nesting in the trees and… Wait, this is not a bird`s nest! Check out these amazing treehouse nests, built by humans for humans. You might get inspired to do alike and build a nest of your own.
1. A nest that you can actually sleep in, at the Treehotel in Harads, Sweden
This nest is actually a hotel room, featuring all amenities you could wish for on 17m². It has separate bedrooms, a bathroom, and living area. Visitors enter the Bird’s Nest with the help of a retractable staircase. From the outside however, it simply looks like a gigantic bird`s nest.
2. Glamping in a bird`s nest in Big Sur, California
In this little nest you will have to make due with a little less luxury, but in return you will be rewarded by being closer to nature. The Human Nest is perched on a hillside and looks like it came straight out of a storybook: twigs and branches are perfectly arranged with two large openings to a night’s view of the Pacific Ocean to one side and rolling hills to the other.
3. A nest that you can dine in, at the Soneva Kiri & Six Senses Spa, Thailand
Tree Pod dining could easily become one of the most novel ways to enjoy a romantic dinner or a long lazy lunch among the tree tops. This luxury holiday resort, located on the remote Thai island of Kood, amid the lush tropical rainforests off the south-east coast of the Gulf of Siam, shows us how it is done.
4. Bird Apartment Treehouse by Nendo in Nagano, Japan
Is it a treehouse? Is it a birdhouse? Design firm Nendo has created the Bird Apartment, a treehouse for humans in the shape of a birdhouse, but also containing space for 78 bird families to roost. You can view through each of the 78 apartment-style peepholes to see different bird families as they nest. Its aim is to get people closer to nature, and it looks like it works!
5. A nest with a view, built by Roderick Romero
Roderick Romero is a tree nest designer and builder. In 1997, he was invited to be part of an art show and asked to build a nest in the trees. On a whim, he accepted the offer and has been building treehouses ever since. Treehouse nests are his signature style.
