New Zealand’s Tree House Restaurant
The Yellow Tree House stands 10 meters up a Redwood tree in a forest near Warkworth, north of Auckland, New Zealand. The project was part of a marketing campaign for the Yellow Pages. Claiming they can “get anything done” Yellow commissioned Pacific Environment Architects to design the treetop restaurant. The company then posted an ad for an everyday person to run the project and host the restaurant. Twenty-six year old Tracy Collins was picked from the applicants, and went about sourcing workers and materials from the Yellow Pages directory.
