Quiet Treehouse: A sylvan escape that battles noise pollution
Making its debut at the Ideal Home Show in London, Blue Forest’s Quiet Treehouse is outfitted with an array of features that drown out modern life’s most irritating noises.
When Lukasz Kos designed 4Treehouse, he wanted it to be an exercise in minimizing the impact on the trees, the building site and nature itself. With this in mind, the two-ton lattice-frame structure was suspended 20 feet above the forest floor with steel cables, and the treehouse is anchored to the tree trunks with just one puncture hole in each of the four trunks.

Finca Bellavista is unlike any other place on Earth. The 350-acre site on Costa Rica’s southern coast is the first modern sustainable treehouse community and is home to houses, a community center and many other buildings— all suspended in the trees. Finca Bellavista is situated among mountains, beaches and rivers so one can imagine the breathtaking views available from a Costa Rican treetop home.
Every treehouse here is one-of-a-kind because each structure’s design varies based on elevations and available trees. This community is also unique because of its emphasis on sustainability. Small homes are encouraged, and all units are required to utilize rainwater collection and to be connected to the local electrical grid, which uses solar power.
