King of the Frogs Treehouse by Baumraum

Andreas Wenning, principal of Bremen-based studio Baumraum has sent us photos of the King of the Frogs Treehouse project.

This beautiful 92 square foot contemporary treehouse and its almost 100 square foot terrace are located in a small private backyard in Münster, a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

Just like Solling Treehouse, King of the Frogs is not a true treehouse as it doesn’t rely on living trees for its structural support, but it is also a dream come true for its lucky owners!

King of the Frogs Treehouse by Baumraum:

“In a small private garden in Münster this space hovers above a flat pool, framed by high bamboo stilts. The visitors reach the staircase across 3 natural-stone steps between water-lilies.

The terrace, made of tatajuba-wood, rests on four stainless-steel stilts and is big enough to relax comfortable on it. Some steps and a small catwalk lead the visitors to the cabin.

The curved cabin in the middle of the pool is covered with a zinc-sheet and lamellas of tatajuba-wood underneath. It rests on eight asymmetrical arranged stilts. Large curved glass at the gables and slim windows at the sides lighten the interior and give a bright and transparent look to the cabin.

Inside the visitors notice the big curved rooftop-window above the pale lying surface. Below the bench on the opposite side drawers give enough storage space. Walls, floor and furniture made of white-glazed ash underline the bright and minimalistic character of the interior.”
