The Yellow Pages approached Pacific Environments Architects Ltd. Of New Zealand to construct a magical treehouse that brought all those fairy tales alive and the architects made a splendid effort in giving the company what they wanted: a Yellow Treehouse Restaurant.

Yellow Pages wanted to build the treehouse in order to promote its own business ventures and what has come out of it is an exceptional example of green architecture, where like in many other cases, architects have taken inspiration from Mother Nature herself.

The Yellow Treehouse Restaurant was built 40 feet up the trunk of a giant red wood tree and overlooks a stunning panorama which includes the stream and dense woods. Modeled on nature’s most sound design when it comes to protection, it’s built from natural material, local products and designed to provide great natural ventilation.

It looks a lot like a cocoon that helps a butterfly stay secure in its early stages, or the shell that protects sea creatures, preserving the flavor inside.

You might still have doubts about affiliating with Yellow Pages after this as there are enough yellow pages in USA alone that fill up to 5% of landfills each year. That might not be all that green, but it there is surely no questioning this eighteen seat cafe with brilliant green design. – via Inhabitat
