In a small private garden in Münster, Germany this tree house by Baumraum hovers above a flat pool, framed by high bamboo stilts.

The visitors reach the staircase across 3 natural-stone steps between water-lilies.

The curved cabin in the middle of the pool is covered with a zinc-sheet and lamellas of tatajuba-wood underneath. It rests on eight asymmetrical arranged stilts.

Large curved glass at the gables and slim windows at the sides lighten the interior and give a bright and transparent look to the cabin.

The terrace, made of tatajuba-wood, rests on four stainless-steel stilts and is big enough to relax comfortable on it. Some steps and a small catwalk lead the visitors to the cabin.

Inside the visitors notice the big curved rooftop-window above the pale lying surface.

Below the bench on the opposite side drawers give enough storage space. Walls, floor and furniture made of white-glazed ash underline the bright and minimalistic character of the interior.
