The Tree Top Residence celebrates the site’s complex landscape, merging with it seamlessly and emerging from it atop the canopy of trees that surround it. Built along a natural ridgeline, the long and narrow plan of the three- story house mimics and inverts the angles of the site’s topography, creating dynamic vertical and horizontal relationships. Vertically, an eccentrically-helical stair functions as a primary organizing element and a sculptural gesture upon entry into the house. Horizontally, walls are used sparingly in favor of fluidly connected spaces: between rooms and to blend the interior with the outside. The design culminates in the master bedroom, which features full-height sliding doors at its cantilevered corner. The orchestration of this view, overlooking a dense canopy of trees, embodies the intent to offer respite from the city below.
