The 'Rooted Tree House' is a marvel of eco-architecture. Anyone who grew up watching the animated television series George of the Jungle, or spent a little too much time playing Donkey Kong Country, has contemplated owning a tree house of their very own. Well, the Spanish design firm Urbanarbolismo has made our wildest dreams a reality with this gorgeous arboreal abode. The tree house is so seamless that it convincingly integrates itself into an ancient oak tree. Remarkably, the construction of the dwelling was completed without a single cut being made to the world-weary tree.

The eco-friendly tree house peeks out from behind volumnous bouquets of emerald foliage. The expansive porch appears organically rooted to the ground overlooking the picturesque pastures of Extremadura, Spain. Breathtakingly beautiful and environmentally economical the Rooted Tree House is sure to have you swinging from the rafters like Tarzan himself.
