Cantilevered “Treehouse Residence” Neighbored by Orchards and Vineyards

Neighbored by fruit orchards and vineyards, The Treehouse Residence by Forestgreen Creations is a modern home in Pelham, Ontario, Canada. Raw concrete, steel and stucco are the materials employed for visually defining the exterior design. The cantilevered volume supported by a V-shaped structure allows most of the living space to be elevated above ground. An optimum connection to the outdoors was achieved through large expanses of glass in every room. Additionally, a swimming pool terrace on the second level provides space for relaxation and entertainment in the middle of a fresh landscape.

Curious what inspired the name of the project? Here is an explanation from the architects: “Firstly, the interior reveals exposed steel framework with diagonal and vertical bracing intermittently appearing and disappearing throughout the walls, ceiling and floors. Secondly, the untrammeled view of the surrounding forest through the floor to ceiling glazing in the penthouse, gives one the sense of being among the trees.” Sustainable features of the residence include a rainwater collection cistern which supplies ground irrigation and water for the pool and a geothermal system.

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
