Tree House-Kiawah Island

Photo Credit: Holger Hobenaus

Description: The owners of this home travel extensively and appreciate the great outdoors. Global travels shaped their desire for a home that embraces nature. The bridge connecting the sleeping and living structures allows cool ocean breezes to pass from the marsh to the front yard; decks and stairs to pool and terrace visually connect inside and out. Most walls from the street are solid, providing privacy, yet they open to rooms of glass, timber and soaring ceilings with views of Bass and Cinder Creeks and Folly Island.

We designed the pool with feedback from our client and then brought on a specialty pool consultant to help iron out the details. We were all very happy with the end results.

This home is, in fact, on Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

I love this outdoor space, can you tell me the setbacks that you were working with? - I would love to have this design for my yard but I believe I must be 30 feet back from the mean high water mark and was wondering if you had to work with similar restrictions?

There are always rules regarding setbacks. It takes a trained professional to ensure that the design is within the guidelines established by the community in which a home is built. We work in many different areas, where the rules can vary widely. We have established a good working relationship with the persons responsible for enforcing these rules in each of the communities where we work, which allows us open communication with them as we begin the very early phases of design. You don't want to get to the Architectural Review Board and have major issues with siting the building or lot coverage. This is just one of the reasons you should always hire an AIA architect.

I just want to say, kudos to the photographer. I don't know how he/she did it, but the way the light is captured in this picture is just amazing. The colors are vivid the whole way through. Great work and best wishes,

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A hot tub hangs over the pool, which in turn hangs over the path to the marsh. "When you're in the pool, the sight line of the water is at the top of the marsh grass," describes Anderson.
10. Think vertical. If you have a good view, take advantage of it. This elevated spa takes in the surroundings but feels private and secluded above the pool. A spa on a well-placed deck can have the same effect.

The setting is sublime, and I like setup of the pool conceptually, though it is a little too austere--would really like to see some dark wood, blue-ish grey stone, and pale yellow and tael accents.
