A San Diego Home in the Trees

Did you have a tree home when you were young? Most of us, if we didn’t, wanted 1 — but odds are that none of our tree homes would have looked really like this San Diego family members house by Safdie Rabines Architects! This property actually does sit high above the ground, amid the trees in Mission Hills, at the edge of a canyon. 1 thing’s for positive: the views from all points on this house are terrific — and, considering that one particular of Safdie Rabines’ driving aims is making site-particular architecture that is each socially responsible and environmentally sustainable, generating this house to sit the way it does fulfills each counts. Nature is much more than just an element in this house’s ambience: it’s component of the extremely essence — and the view from the leading deck affords some great stargazing.

The primary entrance of the residence is just off a porch sheltered in partial shade by a wood-slatted “roof” open-air is the name of the game here, with a living area segueing gracefully into a balcony. Indoors, the palette is clean white and wood grain higher windows lend themselves to effortless cross-ventilation, even though cleverly placed walls give these tree-dwellers privacy when they need it. And who wouldn’t want to entertain in that kitchen, with its classy wood island (containing handy wine storage) and the wall-wide window view? Even the dog is pleased: there’s room to roam here, room to grow, all with a minimal “footprint” and maximum enjoyment of your atmosphere. Day or night, it is all excellent at the Tree House!
