This ain’t your average treehouse. While the ones of our childhood dreams are usually simple little structures patched together with pieces from dad’s leftover lumber piles, this eye-catching structure is more of a floating adult oasis. Shaped like a piercing pagoda, the honey-yellow treehouse seems like it was taken from the forests of Kyoto and carefully unloaded in Long Lake, NY, a picturesque town nestled in the Adirondack Mountains.
The stunning beauty was designed by Nils Luderowski, founder of Luderowski Architect. The Swedish builder — who studied and worked at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute before moving upstate to Keene Valley — is considered the father of the “New Adirondack Style” that has shaped many of the homes found in the area. His designs take into account the needs of modern-day living, but also work with the beautiful natural surroundings.
Like his other buildings, the treehouse stands out for its unique shape and style, but also blends in seamlessly with Mother Nature, with a tree penetrating straight through the center and acting as the foundation. The airy two-story addition is perfect as an outdoor playhouse for kids or as a spot for adults to relax and entertain.
