Most of us in our childhood dreamed of having our own little house on the tree, as a refuge from annoying parents, as a special secret place where we could hold top-secret club meetings or perhaps even put some experiments. Some, by the way, still dream about such a house.
Interesting is the fact that in some countries a tree house is not considered something exotic, but quite natural and everyday. In New Guinea, for example, people of Korowai live in houses on trees, thereby protecting their homes from predators and floods.
Fortunately, the house on the tree has long ceased to be a fairy tale, but more turned into the embodiment of a childhood dream by professional designers and architects. Many companies have long developed projects of hotels made in the style of houses on the tree, with a high level of comfort and convenience inside. Some of them even consist of more than one floor.
