Dubbed ‘The Skysphere’, the innovative elevated room has been designed by plastics engineer and graphic designer, Jono Williams who wanted to build an elevated room with a view that could sit virtually anywhere in the world not just where large trees grow.


The Skysphere is located in Linton, New Zealand, the structure is a circular single room accessible by a ladder in its base and offers endless views of the surrounding countryside.
