TREEhouse

TREEhouse

Irondequoit,  NY
AIA Rochester Design Award Winner


An artist and a writer mandated a "treehouse on the cliff" overlooking Irondequoit Bay.  Our design goes vertical. 1500 sf of living space is kept open; infused with southern light, while knitting space at each of four levels to the western view via patios and balconies.

The sculptor gets a “lair” at walkout level while the writer’s “nest” is perched at the top. A rooftop terrace provides a modest square of sunlight for growing roses on an otherwise densely shaded property.

Size:
1547 sf + walk-out basement
