A Real Treehouse: Sycamore House

What would you do if there was an old, Sycamore tree the the property where you are to build your dream home? Incorporate it into the design, of course!

This 1950's Los Angeles post and beam house was redesigned with more square footage and modern design details. Given some challenges of the land, including the tree and the slope, this property had to maintain a certain shape. The designers, Aaron Neubert Architects, had this to say about the design: "By perpendicularly positioning the addition between the existing house and the street setback, the relationship between the interior of the house and the landscape are reinforced. The cantilever of the addition extends over the hillside, projecting the interior into the tree canopy. Conversely, the sycamore tree is incorporated into the house, literally penetrating the space of the bedroom".
