british design firm blue forest has developed ‘living the highlife’, which is comprised of two treehouses, with one designated for children and the other for adults. the elevated dwellings are linked among a network of rope bridges, which accesses the ‘adventure play area’ and ‘assault course’ also located on the site. the aerial complex provides a playful getaway for the owners’ family, and is able to accommodate guests as well.

the children’s treehouse is characterized by its tall pointed towers, which reference medieval architectural forms. inside, a concealed hatch in the upper floor leads to a game room above. additionally, the complex includes an 80-yard zip line, which accesses the ‘assault course’ on the forest ground.

  • Not bad it’s giving the impression of a secular society but I like the way wood was used to construct it, maybe if they stop making a tree house, a medieval structure construct for kids, okay not bad think about it but why waste your time doing that? why not just keep it real build a castle where they can to see it.

  • Yeah, it wasn’t worth mentioning that the ‘British family’s surname is Rowling…
