Inspired by a Japanese lantern

We are passionate about designing and building special projects. Inspired by a Japanese paper lantern, this tree house was built for a client to enjoy with his children. The objective was to provide an exterior space where the client’s children could play, use their imagination and learn about the outdoors. Together with Scott Larkin of Brawer & Hauptman Architects, we were given six weeks to design, permit and bring the structure to life. Features include a mechanical drawbridge and roof hatch, a rope and pulley system for delivery of goods, bug screens, ship ladders, electricity, refrigeration and a poker table. We are in the process of designing a zip line system to provide an adventurous element to their outdoor experience.
