Nestled in a secluded grove in Austin adjacent Westlake Hills, Texas, a shape not found in nature emerges. An octagon. Made of cedar and glass this Yoga studio treehouse has 8 equal sides which to the owner, symbolizes rebirth regeneration and harmony. To all involved, it represented a complex structural challenge, but the unabashed joy the finished treehouse gave our client ultimately made it all worthwhile. Octagons provide 20% more space than a square with the same perimeter and let in more natural light with panoramic views. Exactly what the client, #morganmaliayoga, requested and received.
