Talented architect and designer Takashi Kobayashi is known for his artistry when it comes to designing tree playhouses that go beyond the nostalgic club house built for kids to offer livable spaces with intricate and tiered designs. Each house designed by Kobayashi is unique in shape and style as he works in conjunction with the trees to create the space.

Treehouses are a whimsical space built overtop of an existing tree to offer a unique area for dwellers to enjoy. Each of Kobayashi's designs focus on the tree first and foremost customizing the home to the sampling rather than vice versa. The end result are magical wooden spaces offering fully fledged rooms with various levels, windows, and insulation to act as a livable space amongst a forest.
