The Tree Hotel, located in Harads, Sweden, was designed by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter.

Located near the ocean in Pittwater, about 30 miles north of Sydney, the Church Point Home was designed by Sydney architectural firm Utz Sanby. The firm describes the home as a tree house that offers “seclusion and sanctuary” to its residents. Concrete pillars made to look like trees support the house on its hillside seat, much like limbs act as a tree house's supports.
