Can you imagine living in a tree house? The architects at Baumraum studio seized this nostalgic idea to design the Baumgeflüster hotel, nestled in a dense oak forest in Bad Zwischenahn, in Germany.

The owners of the land decided to turn their old farm into a hotel where guests would be able to enjoy nature at its purest. To do so, they refurbished the old farm house buildings and had four cabins built in the tree tops to house guests independently.

Baumraum studio’s idea for the design of the cabins at the Baumegeflüster complex was inspired by an unusual structure from the local architecture. Measuring almost 43 feet in length, each of these tree houses stands on a platform suspended some 12 feet from the ground and rests on 14 unevenly and asymmetrically distributed steel pillars. Each wooden cabin is completed with a 400 square foot terrace embracing one of the trees in this great oak forest, leaving the area’s existing vegetation unspoilt.

In tune with the hotel’s natural surroundings, one of the key construction materials chosen was larch wood, which was used on the façades and to line the floors and walls inside the cabins, seeking to achieve a harmonious effect. The result is a cosy ambience to ensure that guests enjoy the most pleasant experience.
