A glass treehouse is easily the epitome of modern treehouses! Illuminated with daylight at all hours of the day staying in the house will not even feel like you are indoors! Another Airbnb property you can ret this for 4 guests and should cost some $500 per night.
Designed by ArchiBlox the natural slope of the lot coupled with a series of gum trees and lush green landscape defined the overall form of the new residence and its cantilevered living form.
Set about apart from one another both the prefab structures provide a stunning escape with one overlooking the lake at the base of the mountain and the other perched atop and providing spellbinding views of the entire mountainous and green terrain.
A smart blend of contrasting finishes that include copper stone terrazzo and beeswax plaster create a fun interior where artwork and accessories add bright and vivacious color.
The steep gradient of the lot also played a crucial role in its overall form as the street façade offers complete privacy even as the rear opens up towards the green scenery outside. Concrete and glass largely shape the residence with composite timber adding to its elegance.
As kids we all loved treehouses. They were the exciting little escape into a fantasy world where we could play high above the ground and plot our adventures. As adults some of that adventurous spirit still lies within us but now it’s mixed with a dream of a luxurious home and a peaceful getaway.
A fully wooden cabin is lovely and traditional but it can become a monotonous sight if all sides of the house are exactly the same and there is no variety. Big windows are an important piece to include into the design as they will create not only an illuminated interior but also an innovative exterior!
