The Tree House is a two bedroom new build home stitched boldly into the street scenography. Using primarily three exterior materials: grey brick, black timber and anthracite metalwork, the palette is simple where the rough brick contrasts the sharp black detailing. The simplicity and rawness of finishing is carried through to the internal fit out with brick walls, natural ash flooring, stairs and joinery, terrazzo tiles and delicate metal balustrades.
Entering the home along the secluded western boundary, the entrance lobby leads to a rich split level arrangement of rooms. Living spaces flow from the front to the rear of the site with the kitchen and living room on the upper most storey making the most of natural daylight. Two bedrooms and associated bathrooms are located within the semi sunken floors which lead out to a planted garden, finished in black cobble setts.
