Most of kids dream of having a tree house and their parents even build one in the backyard. Here’s a dream coming true! This elevated home by architect Antony Gibbon in Woodstock, New York only meets the ground at three points. It’s not a traditional tree house but it’s very similar to one and looks wow. Let’s take a closer look at it.
Outside the house really resembles of a tree house, yet larger and more modern. The house is rustic yet comforting; its wood siding is familiar, yet its trapezoidal shape is exciting. The structure camouflages itself well into the environment.
The architects used the same materials as the neighbors — an assortment of local lumber. The ceilings are never too low to be claustrophobic, nor too high to deplete the sensation of coziness. Glass is widely employed to clearly exhibit the serene natural surroundings. Windows are integrated into the shifting shape of the home, as opposed to simple cut-outs — an integration with very successful effect.
The main layout includes a living room and a kitchen, they fully merge. The kitchen is represented by a comfy and large kitchen island with a cooker and a sink, there no cabinets, and the layout looks airier. The living space is done with a comfy sofa, some wooden side tables and a large metal hearth with firewood storage. The upper level features a sleeping zone with a bed and storage baskets. The furniture is a blend of rustic materials and contemporary design. The house overlooks a swimmable lake, providing privacy and the opportunity to escape society for a weekend getaway, isn’t it amazing?
