Treehouses at Longwood Gardens

Longwood Gardens is in the midst of a multi-year campaign to draw attention to the great trees of the Gardens, which were the inspiration for Pierre du Pont to purchase the initial parcel of land in 1906 that would eventually become the Gardens. One of the larger initiatives was the creation of three spectacular treehouses. Matthew Millan Architects worked with Longwood Gardens and the two premier treehouse design and construction companies in the U.S. to create these unique arboreal structures. Using our passion for nature and well-crafted buildings, we helped bring to life each innovative treehouse in their unique settings and offer different interpretive opportunities. Each of the treehouses, The Lookout Loft, The Birdhouse and The Canopy Cathedral, is both a destination as well as a larger part of the experiential magic of Longwood Gardens. These one-of-a-kind structures are representative of our commitment to excellence and enhancing people’s connections with the natural world.
