Partially anchored to its sloped plot and partially resting on two existing trees, the Half-Tree House is exactly what the name suggests. The structure appears to emerge from the forest floor in a horizontal manner, resting on its existing neighbors. Darkened timber cladding was provided by fallen eastern pine found on the property. The interior carries a brighter hue with white shiplap walls and natural wood floors. Nestled well within its 60-acre Upstate New York plot, the home is unreachable by vehicle, water, and electricity, relying on a wood-burning stove to provide warmth and rotating glazed panels to welcome in a breeze during the summer months.
