Manhattan Tree House Pavilion
A 300 square foot tree house designed, fabricated and constructed in 4 weeks. Located inside the Amory Building in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, the tree house is part of a temporary installation. The structure’s envelope is made from 29 prefabricated plywood ribs and wrapped with fabric creating a glowing “tube-lounge”. The tube rests on four 26-feet tall by 14-inch diameter logs. A plywood and steel prefabricated staircase allows visitors to access the tree house floor which is 10-feet above the ground. The structure focuses on a modern, sleek experience that retains a tangible, raw quality. The design philosophy is modernism with a soul. Design and Construction Management by BUILD LLC.
