Marvel At Japan's Largest Treehouse Which Sits Within A 300-Year-Old Tree
By Winona Wee, 27 Jul 2015
Japanese architect Takashi Kobayashi is known for creating brilliant tree houses that are enjoyed by many, however his latest project may be his best yet.
Titled ‘Kusukusu’, Kobayashi’s treehouse is officially the largest in Japan and sits in the bosom of a three-hundred-year-old camphor tree.
‘Kusukusu’ is a collaboration between Kobayashi and Hiroshi Nakamura from NAP Architects for the Risonare Resort.
The team behind the tree house ensured that the steel frameworks they constructed for the tree house neither harmed the tree nor constricted its space to grow, which sits well with both arborists and architects.
At night, lanterns illuminate the tree and guests can have picnics in the structure. As of March 2014, the tree house has been open to visitors.
