These Whitewashed Abodes are Whimsical, Sculptural and Reaching for the Sky

The sky is the limit in terms of designer Michael Jantzen's imagination, as you can appreciate in these tree trunk houses. This eccentric architectural project treats buildings as sun-seeking branches, with a highly artistic outcome of structurally distorted homes.

The meandering masses seem to have been stretched from their foundations to become billowing edifices capped with their familiar pitched roofs. The inaccessible inset doors are the details of these colorless Tree House constructions, which successfully stimulate a sense of awe with their sculptural silhouettes. These would not be habitable, but rather make a fascinating point in a contemporary park.

Through these tree trunks houses, Jantzen appeals to art, design and architecture lovers and professionals who envision turning fantasy into reality as building technology advances.
