Love the outdoors? So do we and if you are stuck amid the constant rush of big city life then finding some quality outdoor time can be hard indeed. But that can easily change with a fabulous and practical outdoor hangout like the designed by Dan Gayfer Design.
Offering just that but with a hint of originality and contemporary gray panache is the in designed by Steffen Welsch Architects. Inspired by Austrian architect Hermann Czech’s philosophy that sees ‘Architecture as background’ rather than an entity that stands out visually the new family home is all about understated elegance.
This is a dream log cabin that combines the concepts of traditional cottage architecture with the dynamic of upscale houses. It radiates comfort and grandiosity without seeming over the top due to the simplicity of the wood.
When a classic concept is used to create something new and innovative it’s always a treat! Occasionally a modern treehouse pops up that strays away from the traditional design but still manages to capture all the special things we love about treehouses!
The street façade of the LA House was built to keep out prying eyes with the rear opening towards the garden and pool area. Large swiveling glass doors usher in ample natural light and ventilation with the double-height central living area become the fulcrum of all activity.
One can instantly notice how the original structure was composed of a variety of materials that include wood stone and corrugated iron and tile. Giving another layer of textural intrigue to this confluence of contrasting materials is glass!
It’s definitely a big installation that stands out between the trees and feels as if it has always been a part of this setting! It’s a Mid-Century Tree House in Clifton that could be yours for a “mere” $549900. In order to feel like a part of nature itself transparent walls all throughout the house are a must! To an outside observer the house almost isn’t visible due to the marvelously clear glass!
