A group of Dallas-based architects designed a new guesthouse in the trees named the 'PH2 Treebox.' The new structure sits several meters off the ground, giving guests the illusion of "floating in the forest." Building off of the original structure, the designer attached the new part of the home to the second-storey deck, connecting the two structures with an outdoor area.
Sitting on 12-foot high metal columns, the underside of the building is used for covered parking. With natural wood siding, oversized windows and multiple outdoor spaces, this house integrates nature into every design aspect. By adding harsh metals into the design, the house offers a contrasting and modern look that is one-of-a-kind. This new house in the trees offers an extraordinary exterior, with a simple and comfortable interior.
