A mid-century tree house

Posted Thursday, July 08, 2010 by SixSevenEightNine in Labels:

Designed in 1958 by Daniel J. Liebermann, this home in Mill Valley, Calif, was designed to blend into the landscape, was built using salvaged materials like rafters from a 19th-century hotel and glass from World War II fighter planes. Mr. Liebermann, who had apprenticed with Frank Lloyd Wright, had sold the house in 1966. Favouring radial plans and curved walls, there is hardly a right angle in the house. We love the metal tubes at the centre support roof beams that fan out like umbrella spokes and the stone fireplace behind, hand-built by the architect, extends almost the full length of the retaining wall. Despite its modest size — 1,100 square feet, it attracted Andrew and Kim Todd, who run a chain of hair salons in the Bay Area. Nice!
