BANYAN DRIVE TREEHOUSE

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

 

Part office/studio, part recreational getaway, this unique project is located at the base of a large pine tree in the backyard of a canyon residence.  The client is an artist and lover of nature so the Banyon Drive Treehouse, perched twelve feet off the ground, will serve as a creative respite from the demands of domestic responsibilities.

Though modest in size, the plan is efficient 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.
