Deep Roots, Strong Branches: Whole Tree Architecture

A pair of biodynamic farmers settles into a home built from whole, unmilled trees.

A south-facing glass wall overlooks some of the homeowners' favorite views of the gently rolling Wisconsin landscape. The windows also let in sun for natural light and passive-solar heat. Inside, a mezzanine, crisscrossed by graceful branches, anchors the home's central open space.
