a Tree House

Robert Harvey Oshatz design what can be considered the best tree house ever. It goes a bit further away than the ordinary tree house in the backyard. It was design in 1997 but the construction of this magnificent building only ended in 2004. The Wiliknson residence in the forest of Portland where the modern curves and lines blend in to the shapes of the the of the forest, by the use of organic materials. The light works are another fabulous achievement in this design. Definetly amazing, just have a look at this place because here most definitely images speak louder than words.  

Description from the architect: Robert Harvey Oshatz
"A lover of music, the client wanted a house that not only became part of the natural landscape but also addressed the flow of music. This house evades the mechanics of the camera; it is difficult to capture the way the interior space flows seamlessly through to the exterior. One must actually stroll through the house to grasp its complexities and its connection to the exterior. One example is a natural wood ceiling, floating on curved laminated wood beams, passing through a generous glass wall which wraps around the main living room."
