The Redwood Treehouse Restaurant...

A few hundred feet from State Highway One near Warkworth in New Zealand's Northland is this stunning treehouse restaurant.
Constructed around 2008 for use in a Yellow Pages advertising campaign, this outstanding building has been the recipient of many awards from organisations such as the NZ Institute of Architects and the NZ Institute of Building.
In 2009 it was a finalist
in the World Architecture Awards.
The lovely pod like structure designed by Pacific Environment Architects, made from Redwood timber milled on site, sits over thirty feet from the ground and boasts beautiful views of the Redwood Forest and beyond.
Access for the many guests who now visit this popular and unique place is by a gently sloping walkway literally through the trees.
Reminiscent of a beautiful birds nest by day, by night it transforms into a glowing treetop lantern...

  1. Glad you went to see this fabulous restaurant, see we do keep up with the rest of the world. Must go next time I am up that way.

  2. Now that's more like it.I like it. That's where kiwi design should be going! Not on solar powered tupperware waka's. It's a bit of a worry.

  3. Awesome! When was it constructed?
