The Treehouse in Abita Springs, Louisiana was an ideal collaboration between the client, architect, and nature. The client, a renowned naturalist artist based in South Louisiana, wanted to emphasize the architectural design as a direct reflection of the natural surroundings. The client approached CICADA in the Spring of 2018 to develop a plan for the property’s exterior and interior spaces, including the addition of a master bedroom and bathroom to the existing home, with the goal of turning an outdated treehouse into a luxurious eco retreat. The design reflects the values of the client—respecting the landscape, framing views to the surrounding environment, blending the boundaries between interior and exterior—all while maintaining the whimsical feel of a traditional treehouse.
