Forest House

The Forest House is a spectacular family retreat in Northern California. Nestled among tall trees in a forested hill area, the unique house features nine separate structures connected to each other, it comprises a cluster of tent cabins, three sleeping quarters and a living-dining commons, rising into the forest canopy on stilts and linked by wood paths, creating a treehouse-effect. Designed by the Envelope A+D architecture studio, the stained matte black house has large glazed walls and sliding doors that open up the interior to the outdoors so guests can enjoy the natural surroundings.
