Suspended in a Mexican forest, the Floating Treehouse takes inspiration from the neighboring trees. The wooden retreat is anchored to the forest floor by nine stilts, similar to tree roots. Its trunk-like exterior rises vertically three stories. The lowest level is raised off the ground and sits on a large platform. A kitchen, workspace, and drum studio make up the sheltered portion while a large living area is located on the outdoor terrace. A spiral staircase wraps around the exterior, leading to a bathroom and then a bedroom on the top floor. A strong connection between the interior and the landscape is maintained through large windows and openings throughout the interior. At night, the glazing illuminates transforming the dwelling into a glowing timber tower.
