The treehouse sits in a garden in Limhamn, Sweden. It was built using two large plywood sheets “jigsawed into an interlocking apple shape,” and then clad with poly-carbonate sheets to fortify the treetop headquarters. According to the architect, “The interior of this stake-out is a bench, some thin plywood shelves for books and a periscope hidden inside a rotating apple twig to spy on the surrounding villa gardens.” Related: Anders Berensson unveils wooden Trätoppen skyscraper with a numerical facade Anders Berensson Architects are no strangers to creative, organic spaces.

The house sits on a 24-foot wide by 44-foot long concrete float moored to a dock on Lake Union. Its glass facade provides stunning views of the water and allows natural light to bathe the interior, which comprises a main living area with a lounge, kitchen, dining room and rooftop terrace. Bedrooms and bathrooms occupy the lower level of the float home. Wooden slatted screens installed on the southern facade of the upper floor protect the interior from excessive heat and preserve the owners’ privacy.

Frosted glass panels visually separate the toilet from the rest of the bathroom. + Vandeventer + Carlander Architects Via Contemporist Photos by Benjamin Benschneider
