The Tree House: A Modern Addition Connecting Home and Nature

Nestled in the tranquil foothills, the Tree House is a beautiful example of how a 1980s home can get a modern makeover while staying in sync with nature. The ENOKI team and the client forged a strong partnership throughout this renovation journey. The end result? A three-level oasis.

The most interesting addition to this home LLwas the Pavilion which allows the house and its residents to connect seamlessly with the outdoors. It’s a place that can be enjoyed all year round, whether you’re looking for some solitude or a spot to hang out.

The Pavilion is all about blending in with its surroundings. From the way it’s built to the materials used, everything was chosen carefully to make it feel like a natural extension of the house. And when it comes to the furniture and joinery, they’re not just there for show – they make sure this space serves its purpose as a place to relax and unwind.

Downstairs, below the Pavilion, there’s been quite a transformation too. Initially, it was a quiet space with just a master bedroom and an open ensuite. But now, it’s expanded to include a cozy parent’s lounge with a nook and a fireplace. It’s the perfect retreat for the busy mom to recharge her batteries and find a little peace and quiet.

The client and the architects worked closely at every step of the renovation, resulting in a holistic solution that reflects the modern, eclectic vibe of a family-centered home and retreat.

Standing amidst the native bushland surrounding the Tree House, you can feel the connection to nature and the peacefulness it brings. It’s a place where you can forget about the boundaries between indoors and outdoors, architecture and nature.
