Matsushima Tree House Project
A huge tsunami hit Matsushima on March 11th, 2011 which destroyed the whole town. Matsushima is still in the process of recovering…
We built this tree house completely using local wood.
A lot of the time for this project was spent peeling the bark off of the trees that were sourced for the development. Everybody involved was devoted to do this and complete the design.
The commitment from everyone behind the completion of the tree house was a crucial aspect in finishing the project.

Matsushima (松島) is a group of islands in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. There are some 260 tiny islands (shima) covered in pines (matsu) – hence the name – and is ranked as one of the Three Views of Japan. Nearby cultural properties include Zuigan-ji, Entsū-in, Kanrantei, and the Satohama shell mound.
