Floating Treehouse


Floating Treehouse

Suspended in a Mexican forest, the Floating Treehouse takes inspiration from the neighboring trees. The wooden retreat is anchored to the forest floor by nine stilts, similar to tree roots. Its trunk-like exterior rises vertically three stories. The lowest level is raised off the ground and sits on a large platform. A kitchen, workspace, and drum studio make up the sheltered portion while a large living area is located on the outdoor terrace. A spiral staircase wraps around the exterior, leading to a bathroom and then a bedroom on the top floor. A strong connection between the interior and the landscape is maintained through large windows and openings throughout the interior. At night, the glazing illuminates transforming the dwelling into a glowing timber tower.

  • Inside an Enchanting Manor in Greenwich
    Esteemed designer Steven Gambrel oversaw the creation of this unprecedented estate located on 14 lush acres in the prestigious Conyers Farm Association of Greenwich. A member of the elite AD 100 and recognized for his distinctive designs in such illustrious locations as the Plaza Hotel, Gambrel took inspiration from the architectural vernacular of Greenwich—borrowing elements from France, Great Britain, and even the pediment, entablature, and columns of ancient Rome—and infused it with contemporary whimsy, creating an uncommon blend of classicism and modernity that utilizes eye-catching details and striking hues, patterns, and textures. The offering also includes custom furniture, carpeting, lighting, and fixtures designed by Gambrel himself.
