This elevated tree home in Woodstock, new york only meets the ground at three points. while not a treehouse in the traditional sense, it’s called so by the architect for its structural similarity to a tree and its attempt to adhere to the natural environment. ‘inhabit Woodstock’ was conceived by architect Antony Gibbon, whose designs have been touted for their environmental responsibility and cohesion with the landscape. the house is rustic yet comforting; its wood siding is familiar, yet its trapezoidal shape is exciting. the structure camouflages itself well into the environment. This unique treehouse in New York proves to be the perfect forest getaway for those sick and tired of the metropolis commotion.
this home by Antony Gibbon uses the same materials as its neighbours — an assortment of local lumber. attention is given to the human scale of the project; the ceilings are never too low to be claustrophobic, nor too high to deplete the sensation of cosiness. even as you climb the ladder to the loft, you never feel afraid of bumping your head. the glass is widely employed to clearly exhibit the serene natural surroundings. windows are integrated into the shifting shape of the home, as opposed to simple cut-outs — an integration with very successful effect.
The house overlooks a swimmable lake, providing privacy and the opportunity to escape society for a weekend getaway. the home is even up for rent on Airbnb and goes for 335 USD a night — a fair price for a time away from chaotic new york city. it’s a great chance to get in touch with the beautiful landscape of the Catskills, into which this house is cleverly integrated.
