The backyard tree house is the ultimate do-it-yourself project, a badge of honor for enterprising parents who want to share the joys of design, hard work, and private space with their children. But sometimes, you have to call in the pros. The tree houses created by Roderick Romero of Romero Studios are, by any definition, works of art.
Since its inception in 1997, Romero Studios has dedicated itself to designing and building sustainable “green” tree houses around the world. With a deep background in the arts, including painting, sculpture and music, Romero has designed and built tree houses for other great artists including Sting and Trudie Styler, Julianne Moore, Val Kilmer and Donna Karan.
Romero uses 98 percent reclaimed, salvaged materials and always tries to collaborate with local craftsmen. In addition to its dedication to sustainability, Romero Studios prioritizes nonprofit work both internationally and locally at home in New York City. This fall, his work will be on display, a collaboration with designer Suzanne Costa, as part of Project Design, a show house project benefitting the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island.
