Hechtel-Eksel, Belgium – Baumraum
Bookings: The Treehouse
Photography: Markus Bollen
The inspired team at Baumraum have built more than 40 treehouses to date – in Europe, Brazil and the USA. Based in Bremen, they have focussed on experimental constructions on the ground, in trees and by or on water for children and adults.
The designs are all about minimum disturbance and maximum sustainability. For example, the project shown here is anchored to the ground using multiple screw type footings rather than concrete. Where a tree is used for support, it is done in a way that will not damage the tree.
The project featured here is a corporate day retreat. The purpose and scope is to bring decision makers into a green, sustainable environment to discuss exactly that… how their business can address those same environmental issues.
Marketed as the ultimate green meeting room for up to 15 people, it comprises a lounge, a meeting room complete with full AV equipment, a small kitchen, restroom and a forest location! The treehouse can be hired for €400 per day.
Baumraun can build your treehouse for anything between €5,000 and €150,000 which would seem quite reasonable to us, given the size and complexity.
