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.
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!
A multi-level arrangement of the rooms ensures that each space flows into the next as the living area exudes a cheerful bright and contemporary vibe. Natural light permeates through to the lowest level of the house thanks to this spatial arrangement even as the stairwell with skylight above adds to this illuminated brilliance.
A wood cottage can easily pull off a more modern look and still hold the title of a remote getaway that represents a serene atmosphere. The A-frame design is a strong rustic element and provides a great balance to the all-glass front wall.
The rosy roof of this log cabin goes amazingly with the gentle look of the light wood. The entire setting feels very coherent and serene perhaps due to the rocking chairs and the swing on the cabin’s deck.
A treehouse deck is definitely one of the best places to observe the nature from especially if it’s built in the cool shade of a big tree. It makes the whole treehouse experience even more authentic! A big wooden treehouse may not look like the most modern option when you first see it and it definitely has a rustic undertone that always comes with wooden exterior. But the dynamic shape of the house and creatively set up staircases are what lets us in on the secret that current trends have indeed influenced even the treehouses that are buried deep in the woods!
