Nestled among the native oaks and fragrant pines of the Ouachita Mountain hillside in Arkansas, is the soaring rustic Evans Tree House, created by Modus studio.
With the intention to re-establishing children’s awe of nature’s wonders, Modus has bridged the gap between computer aided craftsmanship and carful handcraft to erect a slotted horn-shaped abode in the forest that detracts nothing from nature’s splendors.
Made up of laser cut iron and 113 fins composed of thermalized Arkansas southern yellow pine, its semi-transparent screens allow the children to feel like they have found a quaint secret hideaway among the tree’s twinkling leaves. Modus studio is a forward thinking design collective that appreciates the details of nature and its organic craft.
Many of their projects are intended to merge with natural environments, or to bring a human touch to the natural world in a way where people are invited to enjoy the splendors of nature, while appreciating the perfections of intuitive design.
