Tower House: Architecture that Camouflages into the Tree Canopy

Tower House: Architecture that Camouflages into the Tree Canopy | 建築 | Scoop.it

This small vacation house is designed as a stairway to the treetops.


Keeping the footprint to a minimum so as not to disturb the wooded site, each of the three floors has only one small bedroom and bath, each a tiny private suite. The fourth floor, which contains the living spaces, spreads out from the tower like the surrounding forest canopy, providing views of the lake and mountains in the distance, virtually the entire Catskill Mountain range. The glass-enclosed stair highlights the procession from forest floor to treetop aerie, while the dark green enameled exterior camouflages the house by reflecting the surrounding woods, and dematerializing its form...

Home in the Forest

David has lived since 5 years in the wood, and spent $4,600 in material costs + 1000 to 1500 man hours to complete this house.
Living with the natural world and staying away from the noise and the contamination could be closer than you think, you’ll only need a chainsaw, a hammer, and a chisel....
