A treehouse is an intimate castle-in-the-air that becomes part of the tree. Depending on the treehouse’s position you may lie in your cosy bed up high and look directly into the green leafy roof of the forest, or let your eyes wander over the surrounding landscape from the terrace. A treehouse is a secret retreat, a unique and personal neverland that exists in loving and poetic harmony with the tree and its surroundings. And the wind that plays with the leaves gently sings you to sleep at night. A treehouse combines the simple comfort of a small hunting cabin with a life close to nature.
In 1988, at the age of 22, I began to develop prototypes of furniture made of solid wood and I have been working as an independent certified carpenter with a focus on furniture design since 1993. I spend a major part of my leisure time outdoors in nature where long ago I discovered my passion for buildings belonging to hunting infrastructure that are close to nature, such as hunting blinds. This is where the “treehouse idea” originated from; its physical realisation was finally made possible through the mental support of my girlfriend / partner and the incessant energy of a number of helping hands – and so in May of 2013 the prototype “Treehouse I” came into being.
The experienced craftspeople among my co-workers have been my companions for many years. In the form of workshops further helping hands contribute to the building process. All clients are invited to help as well and they can contribute to all steps in the process, from the initial planning phase to the finalising stages.
