An Urban Tree House In New York City
NO ARCHITECTURE has shared photos of a home they completed inside a residential tower at the edge of Manhattan’s West Village, that has the appearance of an urban tree house.
The open-plan social areas of the interior are housed in a double-height space with 22-ft tall glass walls on three sides, and two “tree houses” that are connected by a self-supporting spiral stair.
Elevated hammock-like platforms reveal create additional seating areas that offer direct water views otherwise obscured by the neighborhood tree canopy.
A home office is hidden from the living room behind an oversized pivoting bookshelf.
A hallway connects the main living areas of the home with the bedrooms and bathrooms.
Before the bedrooms, there’s a TV room.
Each of the bedrooms are filled with an abundance of natural light.
In one of the bathrooms, there’s a wooden bathtub and a large double vanity.
Here’s a look at the floor plan that shows the layout of the home.
