Treehouse-Inspired Homes

Portland-based practice Whitten Architects worked on this striking single-story, treehouse-inspired home for a family who eventually hopes to settle down in Maine. The dwelling is officially named ‘Caterpillar Hill.’ The structure features an elongated design and is propped up on stilts. This elevating feature ties the home more closely to the aesthetic of a treehouse. The architects also worked to create a durable dwelling that will “would stand the test of time.”

The contemporary house finds itself in a rather remote site, away from civilization. It is “swimming in its lush landscape,” as Whitten Architects has eloquently put it. The practice organizes the interior of the treehouse-inspired home linearly. The exterior of the house is clad in Eastern cedar which allows it to seamlessly blend into the lush environment.
