Are you looking for a more versatile camping solution, a safari, mountain or beach retreat, or an urban garden treehouse that avoids planning restrictions, with tentsile the sky really is the only limit.
Tentsile was conceived by architect and treehouse designer, Alex Shirley-Smith, as a portable treehouse that can provide comfortable accommodation in forests as well as any other type of environment.
The structure comprises a collapsable frame of webbing straps with fire retardant, UV and water resistant polyester fabric infill panels. The frame is held in tension by elongates which collect at each of the three high level anchor points, and under the floor to form internal spaces.
As tentsile is suspended above ground level, can be easily erected over water logged ground, desert sands and rocky landscapes. Due to the unique design, the tent provides a level trampoline style floor in any terrain or inclination. It’s elevated position does away with the need to clear the site of foliage and provides separation from flood, sand storms, earth tremors, cold and lumpy ground as well as offering increased protection from wildlife, including insects, snakes and other predators.
