Steel Shots: Treehouse Bridge

Forty-five feet above ground, a steel and wood bridge connects The Treehouse to MetroNational’s headquarters building in Houston’s Memorial City, evoking the sense of an old-fashioned swinging bridge and encouraging team members to visit and work from the open offices and meeting spaces.

Developer MetroNational’s new Treehouse - a two-story, 14,700-sq.-ft office building in Houston’s Memorial City mixed-use development - serves as a collaborative environment for stimulating ideas and, true to its name, brings outdoor elements indoors.

The building was modeled in the form of a treehouse to foster creativity in the architects, engineers and scientists who will occupy the building.

To ensure accessible collaboration, the roof features a steel and wooden bridge 45 feet above ground that connects the building to MetroNational's headquarters. AISC Member CRM Structural Services, Inc. was the steel detailer for the project. The project opened this summer.
