An Urban Tree House In New York City

NO ARCHITECTURE has shared photos of a home they completed inside a residential tower at the edge of Manhattan’s West Village, that has the appearance of an urban tree house.

The open-plan social areas of the interior are housed in a double-height space with 22-ft tall glass walls on three sides, and two “tree houses” that are connected by a self-supporting spiral stair.
