Israeli Architects Grow a “Tree” To Get Us Playing Outdoors

Tree house at Israel Museum in Jerusalem
Inspired by an old pine tree in they court yard of Israel Museum in Jerusalem, Israeli architects designed a modern tree house to get children to spend more time outside.

The roofed structure arises from a ground level deck and is anchored by an old pine tree. Children can access the interior via a metal pole with foot pegs. The rest of the structure is built with a material that typically comes from post industrial recyclables.

The tree house is a fun place to gather for visitors of all ages. Congrats to Israeli architects for creating such a beautiful and functional way to enjoy the outdoors!

Off to visualize my own dream tree house, till next time!
