Nescafé Treehouse

Takashi Kobayashi, one of the world’s leading treehouse builders, designed this unique structure when Nestlé hired him to create a treehouse for a Japanese TV commercial. Kobayashi built the bird’s nest of a house 12 feet high and then added a spiral staircase. Today, the treehouse sits in a field in Kamishihoro, Japan, but while it’s incredibly enticing, the house is off-limits to visitors.
