Cool Treehouse Has a Suspension Footbridge That Leads to a Soaker Tub With a View

With our cities now so laughably unaffordable, thousands of British Columbians are stuck imagining wonderful homes instead of living in them. Spaced is a record of our minds wandering the world of architecture and design, up and away from the unrewarding realities of shoebox condos, dark basement suites, sweet f~ck all on Craigslist and three levels of government that couldn’t give a damn.

(via) A few days of snow is nice and all but fantasies of changes in scenery come with it pretty quick. Flipping through our design bookmarks this morning we laid eyes on this sweet treehouse outside Austin, Texas…

Designed by Will Beilharz, who has built his American architecture practice around the construction of liveable tree houses, the Yoki Treehouse is a two-parter: the main structure has a bedroom, kitchen, living room, curved patio walkway and twisting staircase that leads to a rooftop deck, while the separated-by-a-suspension-footbridge bathroom has a hard-edged tub with a killer view above the tree canopy. The house is part of a sustainable tourism project, so we could actually stay here if we really wanted to (which we totally do).

SPACED // Tiny ‘Nature Villa’ in the Woods

It lacks a kitchen but we'd happily cook over a fire nearby just so we could sleep in that bed and hang on that deck...

Contemplating Life on a Handmade ‘Floating Island’

The big deck holds a BBQ, a herb garden, a hammock, and several other wonderful things besides (like a baby blue canoe).

We’d Like to Self-Isolate in This Off-Grid Tiny House on the Other Side of the World

To be able to escape the city for the sake of social distancing is a dream worth having in these weird and dangerous times.

The cool and remote constructions take full advantage of photovoltaic panels, grey/black water treatment and rainwater collection.
