I can’t forget things, or ignore them–bad things that happen. I’m a lay-it-all-out person, a dwell-on-it person, an obsess-about-it person. If I hold things in and try to forget or pretend, I become a madman and have panic attacks. I have to talk.
Colorado Treehouse. A beautiful treehouse built on a 90-foot spruce. It has a heating; therefore, the house is perfectly comfortable in wintertime, and when the weather is warm the owners can have a picnic on the rooftop deck. Located in Vail, Colorado.
This complete remodel to a classic San Francisco Victorian set about to respect the grace and character of the original house while infusing a modern sensibility of space, light and materiality.
The front facade of the house was kept largely intact; only a bright green door with a translucent polycarbonate panel hints that the building is anything other than original. Once inside, though, visitors are greeted by a steel and glass screen that obscures a central stairway. Lit from large skylights above, the open-riser stair brings light into the core of the building.
