AWE AMONG THE ARBORS
Pete Nelson’s Arboreal Architectural
Nelson’s treehouses are designed to accentuate the beauty of the trees themselves and he sees his creations as an enhancement to the natural landscape he chooses to build upon rather than as an intrusion. As a cross between an architect, a custom shipwright, builder/craftsman AND a tree lover, Nelson can’t stand the thought of clearing out property for a guest house or vacation home, so he helps clients perch these properties in the trees. From building houses in the treetops of Japan to constructing around the majestic redwoods in Northern California, Nelson and his team work within the natural landscape of the property to create a unique and whimsical, yet practical and sustainable design. Often complete with running water and electricity, these arboreal retreats provide plenty of space and comfort for the clients, their children and their friends and even guests (the nelsons operate Treehouse point, a treetop B&B, near their home outside of Seattle, Washington)
