In what’s sure to be the envy of every man who hasn’t quite grown up yet, architect Peter Bahouth created this series of three linked treehouses in the forest behind his Atlanta home. The trio of treehouses are the culmination of the sorts of things every little boy dreams of when building a home in the trees in their youth. Rope bridges serve as pathways, and a bed even folds down to give unobstructed views of the beautiful forest.
An avid environmentalist, Peter named the trio “Mind, Body, and Spirit” to remind of the special connection these unique homes away from home have with nature. Strings of hanging lights will provide for the perfect atmosphere for a getting in tune with the wild on a warm summer’s night. And the fresh cool breezes are easily let in the wooden forts through awning windows. The photos you see here will appear in Jane Field-Lewis’ upcoming book My Cool Shed, and are courtesy of photographer Lindsay Appel (via Ignant).
