Elevated Tea House

Chino City, Nagano Prefecture, Japan

Like a lot of homeowners we know, tea masters typically rein over the building of their teahouses with intense passion. Architect Terunobu Fujimori built himself a treehouse he called Takasugi-an, which translates from Japanese to "a tea house [built] too high." Ternunobu's treehouse is more exclusive than most nightclubs: Access is gained via two movable ladders propped against a supporting tree.
