Japanese architect Takashi Kobayashi of the Tree House People has been declared a “tree house master” by Design Made in Japan. Seamlessly integrating nature and design, this tiny tree house is certainly not just for children.
Made of 100-percent recyclable materials and equipped with smart home technology, this prefab known as SysHaus is a new model by a Brazilian construction and engineering start-up.

One of the main goals of the construction was to do as little harm as possible to the existing environment, which includes waterways that salmon depend upon. Herrin and his team created a garden roof that covers the full extent of the home to meet this objective. “This helps control storm water runoff and also replaces lost insect habitat—insects being a critical food source for juvenile salmon,” he says.
Project Name: Dawnsknoll
A 100-foot-long glass wall opens the view up to views of the bay.
The home's shell of timber and corten steel will develop a natural patina over time.
"Because the clients expressed a lifelong interest in Richard Serra and Andy Goldsworthy, the unfolding sequence with which one encounters these modern artists’ installations inspired our strategy for approaching the residence," notes the firm. "Approaching guests follow a meandering stone wall through the woods and meadow of the site, eventually leading to a crisp line of Corten steel piercing the meadow; moving toward that image ultimately reveals the main residence, and conveys the visitor to its threshold."
The home is located far from the road on the northwest corner of the property and oriented toward views of the water.

Located in the Hampton Bays, the Peconic House is sandwiched between an old-growth forest and the waterfront.
Dawnsknoll’s exterior sidings are cement panels and Resysta wood. The house’s front gate and garage are made from recycled wood.

With the house pointing southward toward Mount Sutton, the residents can embrace the gorgeous views via a covered outdoor patio.
The covered parking pad is supported by an exposed concrete volume with (unseen) built-in storage. The concrete also provides protection against water runoff from the mountain.
The home is clad in black-stained rough sawn cedar that has been sourced from Éco-Cèdre.

Beautifully designed, these mobile structures are composed of high-quality materials at a more budget-friendly price, along with transportable, easy-to-assemble components.
The end elevation displays the shipping container structure and original doors.
The elegant retreat combines contemplative spaces with a sense of drama.
A break in the concrete facade reveals the front entrance, which is marked by a thin steel canopy and two chimneys.
On the exterior of the office, a mural called “Awakened Flow” by Seb Humphreys (AKA Order 55) echoes the tranquil energy of the home.
The roof garden, lush with edible plantings, is accessible by ladder.
Sliding glass panels allow the kitchen and dining area to seamlessly flow into the Japanese-inspired garden.
With the property bookended by two streets, the architects designed two front yards.
Spectrally selective Quantum Windows, radiant floor heating, a cold roof system that prevents ice dams, and closed cell foam insulation to prevent heat loss are some of the key sustainable features incorporated into the camp’s energy-efficient buildings.
The heart of the camp is the main residence, the Lake House, which has a stacked "cordwood wall" made from Douglas firs found on-site.
The outdoor spaces and roof deck are impressive and feature a living roof succulent garden.
