House in Trees by Anonymous Architects

Anonymous Architects designed House in Trees in 2015. Located in Echo Park, Los Angeles, California, USA, this single-family house encompasses 2,400ft² (223m²).

The placement of the house was very important to avoid removing any of the mature Cypress trees that surround the house. In one case the house surrounds the tree as the tree penetrates through the house. Waterproofing a tree in this situation proved to be very challenging but the system works to keep water out of the house.

In an effort to blend into the wooded environment there is a heavy use of wood – both outside and inside. The exterior uses fire treated cedar siding which is a rating required by local building codes.
