Driven by creativity and his youthful desire to leave his mark on the world, Joel Allen searches the wilderness around Whistler, British Columbia, for the perfect place to build The HemLoft, a strange and lovely egg-shaped wooden structure. It becomes a magnet for hikers, tourists and everyone who loves beauty and human ingenuity. What’s next? It’s the Hemraft, a whole new way to enjoy swimming.
