    24. Location: West Virginia, USAWhy we love it: Why chop down a tree if you don’t need to? This design really does bring the outside in.

    Live and let liveFinally, if it is determined that your proposal does fall within the tree protection zone, a tree protection plan will need to be established outlining how your design is going to minimise any disturbance to the subject tree. This could be though certain construction techniques, management of the site during construction, cantilevering structures, permeable surfaces and so on. A joint discussion with your arborist, architect and builder will determine the best outcome for your design.Tree in your way? Don’t cut It down just yet

    Trees as artArchitect Travis Price rejected a “tear down the trees” approach when he designed this amazing forest home. Instead, he decided to incorporate trees into the design. “To see the trees internally and externally as ‘art trunks’ was the essence of living in a West Virginia forest,” Price says. “The clients love it, and with the pealed tree (birch plywood ceilings), the house and the trees reach perfect design harmony.” But how to clean all that glass? Price says the glass tree enclosure maintenance is no different from any other large window. “It’s mostly a bi-yearly at most cleaning for all the windows as they accumulate pollens and airborne tree oils.” The house is raised 1-2 metres off the ground at various points, so it’s a matter of crawling under the house, sliding ladders up against the glass and getting to work.See more of this house
