Bamboo Treehouse In Bali Is Pretty Much A Mansion In The Sky (PHOTOS)

As if Bali's beautiful seascape and tropical weather weren't alluring enough, the Southeast Asian country boasts one of the most amazing examples we've seen of sustainable design -- a six-story structure created by architect Elora Hardy and made almost entirely of bamboo.

Now we've seen treehouses before. But Sharma Springs, as the building is called, gets extra awesome points for being completely handmade ("it was built from a scaled-down bamboo model, not from the blueprints and drawings," Hardy explained to New York magazine) and for housing a library and a spa (in addition to the lucky family who gets to live there).

Outside? Dramatic views of volcanoes and palm trees, of course.

Take in the beauty of Sharma Springs in the slideshow below and head over to Green Village for more details.
