Tree House

Aidlin Darling Design as Architects

Anchored by monumental coastal live oaks and several majestic redwoods, this modest sustainably-designed suburban home offers expansive living spaces that extend into the landscape. The existing trees inform a spatial arrangement of framed views, outdoor rooms, and cover for privacy. The second floor spaces engage the trees canopies, providing a lofty perch within a two-story volume. This volume is defined by the house's canopy, which also serves to edit unwanted views and afford mutual privacy. A concrete plinth, steel and glass armature, and zinc skin respond to the site's high water table, and resonate with its natural splendor.
