the family forest

This project, which is built upon their own historic family forest site, is essentially 2 parallel structures, one sits on the natural grade and the other more private structure is lifted into the trees on sturdy legs, allowing views through the building at grade, to the bluff edge beyond. Linked by a simple transparent walkway, the 2 structures visually and physically engage the site and the pool wherever possible. The adult sleeping spaces, on both ends of the building, are lofty tree houses, where the rooms themselves act as canopies over the beds.
