Friday, I'm in Love | A Compilation of Some of the World's Best Hidden Passages Is there anything quite like the thrill of a secret corner, hidden away from the world, with it's entrance in plain sight, but inconspicuous to the unknowing passerby? I'd be elated if I ever had the chance to visit such a nook, or have one in my own home one day.. A reading closet sounds just about right! The closest I've ever come to any such thing is visiting Tate, the 1920's gentlemen's secret bar in G Tower, with a concealed entrance (hint: look for the hat). (Image from Bart Kowalksi) Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised to literally open the wall and step in to this swanky place, modeled after secret speakeasy bars during the 1920's prohibition era. But back on topic. I've especially compiled a list of some of the best secret doorways spotted during my perusal of the the wonderful world of Internetdom for all my readers. 1) Secret passage in a library: Opening up to.. a table set for tea! Divine. A cuppa, anyone? (Source: Simon Brown Photography) 2) Secret panel in wardrobe leading to a Narnia-themed playroom: No, they didn't.. This nine-year-old has got to be one of the luckliest little girls in the world! Her parents actually constructed a wardrobe leading into Narnia for her! Hahahha! The author at io9 suggests sealing up the back panel of the wardrobe as the kid gets old so that she is psychoed into believing that she is completely insane for having imagined stepping through her wardrobe into Narnia as a child, only she did. Hahahah T_T it's a pretty cruel joke, but you gotta admit, it's hilarious.. (Source: io9) 3) Anne Frank's Secret Annex: Possibly the most famous hidden door in history. The movable bookshelf which concealed the entrance to the Secret Annex where Anne Frank hid with her family from the Nazis during WWII. Constructed by Father Voskuijl, the warehouse manager, Anne Frank wrote in her diary on August 21, 1942, “Now our Secret Annex has truly become secret…Mr. Kugler thought it would be better to have a bookcase built in front of the entrance to our hiding place. It swings out on its hinges and opens like a door. Mr. Voskuijl did the carpentry work. (Mr. Voskuijl has been told that the seven of us are in hiding, and he's been most helpful.),” This secret entryway is available for view at its original premise at the Anne Frank Museum at Prinsengracht 263. To mark its 50th anniversary, the museum has created the Secret Annex Online where you can examine the bookcase here. (Source: Anne Frank Museum) 4) The secret door at the library of the St. Florian’s Monastery (Source: David Cuartielles) 5) Secret Entrance to a Hidden Pub at the offices of Steelhead Partners: Taking after-work drinks to a whole new (hidden) level (Source: carimullaney) 6) Secret Sauna in Martha's Vineyard Summer Home: Designed by Robin Pelissier, this secret sauna hideout in the bathroom of Martha's Vineyard Summer Home in Boston wins the prize for a modern twist on the rather dated idea of hidden doors. I have a feeling vacationing here would make a great getaway. (Source: Robin Pelissier) 7) The Home Theater Ticket Booth Hidden Door: Brought to you by the imaginative minds at Creative Building Resources, this vintage ticket booth adds a hidden door to your home theater room by making it look like an old school ticketing both. The front glass panel is cut for the speak through and ticket slot. It even comes with programmable scrolling LED sign built into the top of the frame, wooden inlays and recessed lighting. The interior can be accessed by a full sized cabinet door at the back of the booth. (Source: CBR) 8) One of the secret doors of the Stift Admont library, Austria: Looks absolutely dreamy. I have no idea where the stairs leads, but I sure would like to find out. (Source: Olympia LeTan)
My dream house would have a library with a secret room.
A secret room, behind a wall of many books. A library with a hidden room.

The Minister’s Treehouse: A 100ft Tall Church Built Over 11 Years without Blueprints
Squares, World Largest, Trees Houses, Treehouse, Big Trees, Places, Dirt Roads, Mansions, The World
"In the early 1990s, landscaper Horace Burgess bought some wooded land on the outskirts of Crossville, Tennessee. One of the bigger trees, next to a dirt road, caught his eye. He decided to build the world's largest tree house in its branches. But Horace had a job and a family. After spending a couple of years on the project, he ran out of lumber and enthusiasm. "Then I turned my life over to God," Horace recalled. "And the spirit of God said, 'If you build Me a tree house, I'll never let you run out of material.'" God doesn't make housing offers every day. Horace got himself ordained as a minister and went back to work. God showed Horace what the tree house would look like ("It was like a vision") but didn't tell Horace how big it would be. "If He had," Horace said, "I would've tried to talk Him out of it." Eleven years of labor later, Horace had what he'd originally wanted: the largest tree house in the world. It spreads across not one, but seven big trees that grow through its floors and out of its windows. It soars 100 feet into the sky. Built without blueprints, its dimensions are a mystery even to Horace, who guesses that it covers around 10,000 square feet."
Worlds largest treehouse, Crossville Tennessee. A resident in Crossville, TN (U.S.) named Horace Burgess has the world’s largest tree house. it reachs 97 meters high towering into the sky. it is supported by a white oak tree, with an 80-foot height and diameter of 12 feet. Six other trees grow like a castle tower. This mansion has 80 rooms and 20 veranda's, overlooking the gap and staircase.
The World's Largest Tree House - This stunning threehouse can be found in Cumberland County, Tennessee. It's 97 feet high and it'sbuilt on a 80-foot-long white oak. The treehouse has 10 floors and its size is about 8,000 to 10,000 square feet. It took 258,000 nails and 12,000 to build it. The credit for this amazing place goes to a man named Horace Burgess. He began the project back in the 1980s and has been going ever since, with much help of course. great attraction to many visitors.

Despite each structure's glass walls, Mr. Cecil said privacy isn't an issue. 'You're nestled in a ravine,' he said. 'Where you park, you can't see the house. Its visual footprint is almost zero.' Nevertheless, he said he has received a number of unexpected visitors. 'One time I was in my underwear in the living room, and someone knocked on the door saying they were lost.' Mr. Cecil ended up giving the guest a tour. He said he tries to accommodate people, and has had planned tours. Desert Nomad House 07/27/11 Price: $975,000 Location: Tucson, AZ

The Chicken Point Cabin, built in 2002, is a house situated on a lake in northern Idaho which the architects describe as “a little box with a big window that opens to the surrounding landscape.” The cabin’s big window-wall (30 feet by 20 feet) opens the entire living space to the forest and lake.
