Built on a sloping site the rooms are organised around a central tree which pierces through the floors. On the first floor entry level, four bedrooms and two shared bathrooms overlook a large multi level sitting dining space.
At the house’s topmost level, the master bedroom is flanked by a large walk in wardrobe and a deluxe bathroom. Other amenities include a gym/sauna room, laundry, office, party room and a guest bedroom.
The main inspiration for this project was to build a house around a tree. This concept is based on the function of each individual space, where each room would be able to enjoy the view of growing vegetation in the centre of the house, while still retaining privacy.
The tree acts as a spine for the house and is a perfect illustration of connecting interior and exterior in architectural planning and design. The use and function of the tree would be enhanced in the Christmas season where every room of the house would face a beautifully decorated Christmas tree.
