The Tree House by KAA Design Group

September 16, 2009

Another house that will be part of the Fall Home Tour put on by the Los Angeles chapter of the American Institute of Architects is the Tree House by KAA Design Group.

Located in the desirable “tree section” of Manhattan Beach, this home reinforces the viability of indoor/outdoor living along the Southern California coast. Locally sourced sustainable materials are, whenever possible and relevant to the design concept, left exposed to reveal their natural finishes.

The Tree House’s combination of wood, concrete and glass creates a nurturing aesthetic that feels as warm and familiar as it does forward and modern. The Modernist attention to detail is expressed throughout with hidden heating and cooling functions built in to allow for natural ventilation.
