TreeHaus Residence

This high efficiency home in the microclimate of Summit Park is designed by Park City Design+Build to withstand the seasonal snowy extremes of Park City, Utah.

  • area / size 3,500 sqft
  • Year 2018
  • Type House,
  • The TreeHaus is a site driven, highly responsive design + build project. Reacting to the steeply wooded site, the house is arranged in a series of cubic geometries that imbed themselves into the thermal comfort of the hillside, coupling the stepped retaining walls as external boundaries.

    Environmentally speaking, the home, sited at 7,000 ft in the extreme snowy microclimate of Summit Park near Park City, is designed to Passiv Haus standards with a highly efficient thermal envelope and energy systems.

    Socially, the spaces are arranged so that the primary public living areas are vertically sandwiched between two levels of private spaces, utilizing the stepped rhythm of the form as deck and patio space to create an open indoor outdoor experience. This house is a tribute to our rational approach to design + building in a more deliberate, modern form.
