The Wilkinson Residence in Portland, Oregon, combines a love of trees and music. Inspired by treehouses, it was designed and created by Robert Harvey Oshatz for a private client in Portland, Oregon, in 2004.

The owner is a music lover, and the space (on the edge of a steep, wooded slope) is all about flow, striking wooden curves that flow melodiously into each other.

As Oshatz says, ‘This house evades the mechanics of the camera; it is difficult to capture the way the interior space flows seamlessly through to the exterior. One must actually stroll through the house to grasp its complexities and its connection to the exterior.’

The natural wood ceiling hangs on curved laminated wood beams, passing through a glass wall that wraps around the main living room. Giving the house the impression of floating among the trees. RM
