Following the amazing success of "Treehouses of the World", "Treehouse Living" looks upward once again into the canopy to present new directions in treehouse design. Over 300 beautiful colour photographs and illustrations explore the many possibilities of truly living in nature, from very refined, comfortable structures, to the more rustic treehouses that seem to vanish into the foliage, to the utter simplicity of a comfy bed nestled into a tree. Perhaps most amazingly, all of the treehouses shown are 100 per cent eco-friendly: no nails were hammered into trunks and no branches were cut. A unique source of inspiration for any parent and child looking for new treehouse ideas, "Treehouse Living" is also perfect for anyone interested in architecture and how perfectly we can live harmoniously with nature.
Alain Laurens was the president of a large publicity agency before founding his small company, La Cabane Perchee, in 2000. He was inspired by childhood memories and Italo Calvino's The Baron in the Trees when he started conceiving tree houses and building them around Europe. His partners Daniel Dufour, a watercolour artist and Ghislain Andre, a carpenter, respectively design and build the cabins with a team of carpenters and woodworkers.
