Matt Light Foundation Treehouse

This unique project features a delicate timber frame structure suspended several feet above grade while being supported by multiple standing trees already existing on the site. Careful design considerations were made to utilize these existing natural features as structural elements while simultaneously minimizing the building footprint and site disturbance.

The intricate yet delicate timber frame of the cabin was meticulously designed for the Matt Light Foundation by focusing on their goals of developing specialized skills in their students through hands-on timber frame construction. Keeping these students in mind, every joint and timber connection was carefully considered to enhance the intricacy of the build and further the campers journey to mastery of the craft.
