Noma Bar’s treehouse provides views over Japanese woodland
Beautifully designed new treehouse takes root in Japan, via dezeen.
Israeli illustrator Noma Bar has created a wooden pavilion shaped like a bird with a leafy back among the trees of a wood in central Japan.
Bar was commissioned by the Momofuku Ando cultural foundation – named after its founder, a 20th-century inventor who was one of the creators of instant noodles – to design the timber lookout at the highest point of a woodland area in Komoro, Nagano Prefecture.
