Redwoods Treehouse is a Restaurant Among the Tree Tops

The Redwoods Treehouse was commissioned by Yellow in 2008 as part of a marketing campaign. The finished result is this curved, pod-like structure (similar in shape to the HemLoft by Joel Allen) nestled ten meters into the air, and supported by a single Redwood tree.

Once the marketing campaign by Yellow was completed, ownership of the treehouse was passed to the landowner and The Experience Group were granted exclusive rights to manage the unusual space for use as a private venue. The Redwoods Treehouse can be used to serve a variety of functions, but it is namely used as a corporate venue for private events.

Hanging 10 meters above the ground and fastened to a Redwood tree, it makes for a unique restaurant venue and offers fine dining, corporate entertainment and private parties – a versatile space which can used for a variety of occasions (provided you’ve got the funds).

Located near Warkworth (45 minutes north of Auckland), the treehouse can be found in an amazing forest landscape with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The substantial timber structure frames the views without detracting from them, due to the mostly open framing. If some shelter is required, the “walls” can be partially sealed up with what looks like plastic sheets.

Access to the lofted restaurant is provided for by a top walkway, which was constructed using locally sourced Redwood that was milled on-site.

Redwoods Treehouse is capable of accommodating up to 30 guests at a time. Events and functions can be seated or casual stand up, and The Experience Group will even provide a 32-seat coach to take you, and your guests, to and from the exclusive venue.

The treehouse is best seen during night time, the structure lights up like a lantern creating a warm and inviting glow on the surrounding environment.
