From our point of view, any form of architecture should coexist in harmony and be a part of its surroundings. While designing the Mountain Tree House, Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects succeeded in establishing an intimate contact between this modern home and the natural environment in which it is located.

Hidden away in the Appalachian foothills near Rabun Gap, Georgia — nearly on the border with North Carolina — this modern getaway consists of a glass box housing a single bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom, the latter offering an open-air showering experience. The entire house is cantilevered over a steel and concrete structure, as is the slate and steel catwalk and terrace.

A contemporary reinterpretation of the classic tree house, this awesome retreat is listed on airbnb and is available for a nightly fee of $250. You won’t literally be sleeping in a tree when you book a stay at this modern tree house – it’ll just feel like it.

If want to enjoy nature at its best in a scenic location but without giving up the comforts of modernity, the Mountain Tree House by Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects is the place for you. Check it out.
