Peter Stutchbury’s Treetop House


Designed in 1991 and completed in 1993, award winning architect Peter Stutchbury’s Treetop House in Pittwater, Sydney is a sight to behold. Enveloped among the very top of the trees, the home becomes a part of the lush canopies which surround it, in fact – it’s hard to believe that the CBD is a mere 40km away.

The expansive and towering 3 bedroom home has dedicated the entire ground floor to be an adaptable space, able to transform into guest quarters, a home office, study, second living area or children’s haven. The second level is home to the master bedroom, and the upper level an incredible spread including the main living area, dining, family space and 2 further bedrooms, as well as decking either side of the home, offering extra living space and spectacular views. Blockwork, tallowwood, jarrah, blackbutt, and steel all come together to pull off a home that sits peacefully within it’s environment.

It really is no wonder Peter was the recipient of Australia’s highest architectural honor, the Australian Institute of Architects’ Gold Medal.
