Tree House

Nestled among trees in a leafy suburb, this modest extension was the key to facilitating interaction with an otherwise steeply sloping and an under-utilised backyard. The extension connects to the existing house via a sculptural staircase around an original brick wall. Rather than locate the extension under the existing house where light and ventilation was compromised, the extension is designed as a treehouse element, protruding deep into the garden and creating a private retreat from the main living areas of the house.
