World’s Most Beautiful Modern Treehouses, Fairy Tale Castles For Adults
Generally, a tree house is associated with childhood and the idea of having a safe haven, a secret place where no one bothers you. Nevertheless, there are some adults who took this childhood dream to a whole new level, creating unbelievable arboreal dwellings, far more incredible than one could ever imagine.
A childhood fantasy turned into reality, these architectural eye candies are built in all kinds of styles, shapes and sizes, from the traditional to the modern, from tiny shacks clinging to a single bough or unique treetop observatories to sprawling works of art spanning several trees.
Today we have turned our attention to the modern ones, complex structures created by specialized firms or architects that have long outgrown the traditional wooden cabin concept, featuring multiple floors or even glass and mirror elements.
