Gracefully built wooden treehouses are the perfect place for busy people who want to enjoy in the peace and quiet of the nature from the warm and cozy comfort of a lifted tiny house! This modern version of a treehouse has a very industrial look to it and almost has a camouflage-like color.
The bunker is not the only upgrade that the Brighton Residence acquired with a new outdoor living area being added next to the living space inside. Extending into the backyard and pool area the new extension houses a portable lounge TV fireplace and even barbecue zone. A timber landing connects the spa and lap pool with the rest of the setting and the entire backyard seems like a world in itself – an ideal retreat for a stylish staycation!
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!
Beyond the passive solar design principles a lovely garden and green landscape around the residence add to its sustainable style. Despite a modest street façade the house opens up towards the rear and brings the outdoors inside.
Designed by Tobias Partners the house was originally built in 1980s and was in urgent need of a fresh modern makeover. Despite the difficult access to the lot and the constraints placed by the existing form of the house the interiors were completely opened up to welcome in gentle ocean breeze and a flood of natural light.
A fold of natural light illuminates the modern kitchen and dining with the outdoors becoming a part of the interior. Space-conscious home workstations and unassuming minimal décor enhance the ‘modernist’ appeal of a house that has shed its classic cloak.
A large deck with pergola shapes the outdoor living zone with space for vines and creepers to grow in over time. Despite their modern appeal the bedrooms embrace a refined Scandinavian look even as sliding glass doors and a long corridor filled with lovely artwork complete this exquisite Aussie home.
