The concept of a treehouse can inspire a house set in the clearing among the trees still lifted above the ground but clearly setting itself apart from the nature with a noticeable sand-colored exterior.

The dark and shabby state of the wood makes it an outstanding piece that embodies the concept of nature as the main building element.
