Two Tree house is located in a low density residential area on the northern escarpment of Buderim mountain. The house is carefully planned to retain and capture views of two mature flooded gum trees on the site and long views to the hills and landcape beyond.
This single level house uses a lightweight steel structure and cantilevers over the site. The plan locates the bedrooms on one side and living areas on the other. A timber batten breezeway in the centre of the house channels breezes and connects indoor and outdoor spaces. The house has a raked ceiling with high-level windows and louvres that bring natural sunlight in a capture external views inside the house.
