Music studio on stilts

An interesting design for a Highgate garden office in London from Trew Turner which incorporates a tree in a somewhat surprising way. The apple tree in question could have been taken down but the client and their cat enjoyed it so much that they decided to keep it. The whole building sits on oak posts and is finished with pine weatherboards. Here's what the builders say about it:
"The door was salvaged from a reclaim yard and we are really pleased we did. The unit is fully insulated and also has acoustic plaster-boarding within so that when it's used as a music studio the sound doesn't leak. The flat roof includes two roof-lights making it pleasant inside. The deck outside provides a decent place to sit in the summer months."
