KISSING THE BLUE SKIES AND COCOONED BY LEAVES, OAKLAND-BASED 02 TREEHOUSE CONSTRUCTS PLUSH LIVEABLE STRUCTURES TO FOSTER MAN’S RELATIONSHIP WITH NATURE
BY ARCHANA AITHAL ROSE
Harnessing the nostalgia of your distant childhood, Oakland-based 02 Treehouse, the brainchild of founder Dustin Feider, creates conceptual, geodesic tree sanctuaries that are not just more structurally sound than most childhood versions, but also actively support eco-tourism. Some designs, like Feider’s Pinecone Treehouse in California, feature state-of-the-art details like an interactive glass roof to gaze upon open skies and the surrounding redwoods, acrylic windows, and a plush and cozy bed. Utilizing a myriad of materials like cedar, upcycled copper, bamboo, and reclaimed steel, 02 has fabricated over 85 customized structures across the globe for meditation and even residential retreats.
