Living high up in the trees is no longer only a fantasy. A renewed passion for nature, combined with the growing availability of innovative building techniques and materials, has created a burst of imaginative treehouse construction on every continent. Alain Laurens is Europe’s leading architect of such projects, and his company, La cabane Perchée, is internationally recognized for its extraordinary treehouse design, superior workmanship, and ecological responsibility. Treehouse Living includes fifty innovative treehouses in a wide range of styles, all built without driving a single nail into a tree. From a lofty porch for entertaining to a secluded bedroom set amid rustling leaves, from an intimate dining room to a living area complete with spectacular views, this book offers a new way to live well in nature.

Following the amazing success of "Treehouses of the World", "Treehouse Living" looks upward once again into the canopy to present new directions in treehouse design. Over 300 beautiful colour photographs and illustrations explore the many possibilities of truly living in nature, from very refined, comfortable structures, to the more rustic treehouses that seem to vanish into the foliage, to the utter simplicity of a comfy bed nestled into a tree. Perhaps most amazingly, all of the treehouses shown are 100 per cent eco-friendly: no nails were hammered into trunks and no branches were cut. A unique source of inspiration for any parent and child looking for new treehouse ideas, "Treehouse Living" is also perfect for anyone interested in architecture and how perfectly we can live harmoniously with nature.
