The options for those who prefer non-traditional living spaces are becoming broader by the day. There’s the #vanlife trend, tiny homes, and now yet another expansion on the outdoorsy type’s dream residence—the treehouse. 

Adding to their roster of gorgeous treehouses, Oakland-based company O2 Treehouse just took its arboreal architecture mission to another level with the announcement of Treewalkers, “a treehouse hospitality franchise” that aims to give travelers access to eco-friendly getaways and landowners the opportunity to invest in an innovative venture.

With a design that prioritizes harmonious living in a natural setting, the company is in the process of making its elevated platform design the basis of treehouse communities where property owners can build single units or entire villages. O2 Treehouse is confident that in its approach to architecture lies a restorative energy. “In this way, we believe that the disconnect between humans and the natural world may begin to heal,” the company writes in a press release.

The modular designs are constructed in a way that allows them to easily blend in with their natural surroundings. For an example of their previous work, allow us to refer you to O2 Treehouse’s stunning pinecone-inspired design, a geodesic structure that’s suspended 35 feet above the forest floor, nestled among California’s giant redwood trees. Its transparent floor panels and flip-open windows give the occupants a one-of-a-kind immersive experience.

Of the demand for its nature-related escapes, O2 Treehouse cites its treehouse rental ratings and the ongoing pandemic as motivation for expansion. “Especially now in the new normal of COVID-19, we are seeing more and more people want to get away and have their own space,” the company writes. “Our beautiful treehouses couldn’t be a more perfect location to do just that.”
