Fall 2012— Treehouse, Austin, TX; live/work community for writers and others who want to work in seclusion
The Treehouse live-work community is designed for those who want to get away and focus on their work. Living here, you are able to work in your own writer’s treehouse, propped up on stilts. By getting your workspace out of your house and into just one small room with a wall of glass, you can take advantage of the isolation to really focus on whatever your project is.
The design of the community has been focused around the preservation of the nature of the site before building. Every major tree has been preserved, and many measures have been taken to cause minimal damage to their root system. There have also been complementary strategies to manage stormwater, collect rainwater, and provide radiant heating and cooling.
