Atlanta architect Peter Bahouth’s most famous creation so far is undoubtedly the one he built in his own backyard. Depending on how you look at it, the Ewok-style installation is either three linked treehouses with separate functions or one treehouse whose three rooms happen to be in different trees. The sections are named Mind, Body, and Spirit, and one’s a living room, one’s a bedroom, and the last and highest is a sort of meditation/viewing platform. It’s not the only place with a good view, though: the bed slides out of the Body component so that Bahouth and his wife, Katie, can literally sleep among the treetops on a nice night.
