Residential Architecture: Cliff Treehouse by Baumraum: “..[a] treehouse nestled into maple trees near the Hudson River in New York designed by German-based Baumraum. Far from a child’s treehouse, this residence provides simple interiors with a touch of elegance. Constructed for a family with two children, the treehouse serves as an outlet for relaxation and is connected to their main residence via a slender wooden catwalk..While the residence looks to be suspended in midair, it is actually perched atop a wall of rocks and then extends off the cliff..The oak tree carries the weight of the terrace with heavy-duty straps and steel ropes. The treehouse is propped up by two slanting supports on the front and two small stilts near the rock..In the evening, the lighted room illuminates the tree tops..”
