The Garrison Treehouse is a playful retreat by Sharon Davis Design, a studio based in New York City. Situated upstate in Garrison, New York, the 200-square-foot box is surrounded by the meadow land, forest, orchards, and hills of the Hudson River Valley.

Made of polycarbonate, steel, and white cedar, the treehouse is strong enough to weather many seasons of adventure. The steel and wooden finishings were fashioned off-site by a local furniture craftsman in order to deliver on character and quality. The nets, however, were handmade on-site, as the lashing process has a low impact on the habitat.

The completed treehouse provides plenty of room to play and be creative. Netting serves as a climbing entrance that leads up to a trapdoor and a ladder. Inside, there is a net on which to sit and access to firefighter-style escape poles. On the uppermost level, there is a small balcony with a fold-down writing desk crafted from mahogany, plus a winding slide. The youthful architecture project promises to the headquarters of outdoor fun for many years to come.
