The wooden guest house created by TOTeMS Architecture is located in a highly regulated FEMA flood zone requiring elevated floor levels. To preserve the health of the oak hammock, the house is supported on a specialized steel piling foundation system designed to avoid root disturbance and minimize sub grade impacts to the oaks. As a result, all existing trees were preserved. According to the architects’ description, “the owner requested a “house in the trees.”
