28 Elevated Architecture Designs

From Adult Treehouses to Gravity-Defying Homes

— June 2, 2009 — Art & Design
Who says a house has to be planted on firm ground? These days we are seeing an increasing amount of elevated architecture, from houses high on stilts (hunting tower style), to treehouses designed to be actual homes to live in. In addition to incredible elevated architecture styles that have already been built, we have seen a wide range of concept homes that appear to float, which are also featured within this cluster.

It's time to get your head in the clouds!
