Modern Eco Friendly Tree House by Standard

Standard, an Los Angeles based architecture firm have projected a new standard for modern residential design 'Modern Eco Friendly Tree House' located among the trees on a sloped lot in Los Angeles. Tree House is a modern home with luxury features and eco-friendly elements that make it a one-of-a-kind residence. This 167m2 house of concrete, wood and glass boasts a southern exposure with amazing natural vistas and the Los Angeles basin beyond.

A massive ash tree at the front of the house sets the tone for this nature-loving design, complete with passive solar technology for climate control. On the main level, floor-to-ceiling glass opens onto a deck that cantilevers over the hillside. The home’s second level overhangs the concrete deck below. In its entirety, the house boasts a strong horizontal presence with its roof, deck and two storeys, balancing out the tall vertical trees that surround the house.
