Though the odd, elevated world of arboreal architecture has pretty much always been populated by super bizarre buildings, offering everything from kiddie-sized kingdoms to precarious breweries, the mind-boggling Treehouse Djuren is proudly the weirdest of the pack. German treehouse experts Baumraum—who also happen to be responsible for this questionably child-proofed floating spaceship in a pond—constructed the oval, multi-level hut as a "a comfortable escape for a family on a wooded property in northern Germany."
The main quarters look like some sort of odd mash-up of a submarine, carnival ride, and a rolling pin—or rather the last thing innocent hikers would ever expect to find way up in a tree—and are made from wood, sheet zin, and four inclined steel supports (sorry treehouse purists.) Inside, there are "sleeping benches" covered in gray felt and big ol' egg-shaped windows with some great forest views. Take a look, this way.
