Tree House
Completed: 1994

Not strictly a house, this landscaping and prototyping exercise was devised as a solution to the needs of the client's growing children. It is also the city-dweller's answer to the tree house. The main feature of a tree house (the tree) is replaced with a concrete column.

The construction blends into the backdrop of mature trees and is a welcome refuge for the children while allowing them to stay connected with the world, as it receives wi-fi from the main house.
