Text description provided by the architects. The structure is located on private property - a sheep pasture - just outside of Prague. It consists of two independently anchored, wooden platforms. A transparent cladding is suspended from the ceiling on a subtle wooden ring. A second guiding ring is attached to the floor.

The object is accessible by pull-down stairs counterweighted by a rock suspended on a thin cable. The project was based only on a simple sketch and the layout of the trees, so the final appearance was largely determined during the building process itself.

Anyone can visit the treehouse after making an arrangement with the owner. An annual workshop will be an important part of the project. An event, where all the treehouse visitors can come together and plant their own tree, will be held once or twice a year.

This happening should take place in the imminent proximity of the treehouse and should help to restore a defunct tree alley or to create some other sort of a distinctive landscape element. This way people will stop being mere visitors to the place but will become an active part of its creation.
