This Curvaceous Wooden House Sits Among The Trees

Architecture and interior design firm Malan Vorster, have designed the House Paarman Tree House in Cape Town, South Africa. The small one bedroom home in the trees was built from materials that when left untreated, would allow the materials to weather naturally with the surrounding forest.

The house is located in a clearing of the forest, on a bit of a hill, providing spectacular elevated views. The home makes use of vertical height, and has been arranged around the geometry of a square with four surrounding circles, creating a pin-wheel plan layout.
