Pinecone-shaped treehouse in the Dolomites
A circular skylight in the tip of this pinecone-shaped treehouse by architect Claudio Beltrame in the Italian Alps allows the occupant to gaze up into the starry sky at night.
The structure located in the town of Ugovizza in the Dolomites is available as a holiday let. Italian architect Claudio Beltrame created the treehouse in the shape of a pinecone, the woody fruit of the pine trees native to the coniferous forests of Tarvisio where his studio is based.
He was inspired to create the treehouse in response to growing popularity of ecotourism and escapist retreats.
