Part office/studio, part recreational getaway, this unique project, by Rockefeller Partners Architects, is located at the base of a large pine tree in the backyard of a canyon residence. The client is an artist and nature lover so the Banyon Drive Treehouse, perched twelve feet off the ground, will serve as a creative respite from the demands of responsibilities.
Though modest in size, the plan is practical and allows for a studio space/living area and a toilet room. Deep-oiled wood siding, mahogany windows and a Rheinzink roof were chosen for their natural qualities and rich palette.
