WholeTrees seeks to inspire wonder in common spaces. These conceptual renderings were created for an upcoming daycare center client. Branching timbers would pique the children’s natural curiosity and enhance learning. Natural and sustainable building materials offer a healthier indoor environment by bringing the outdoors in.
WholeTrees created these conceptual renderings for an upcoming client. The project consists of an administrative building and training center. The structural timbers throughout the project tell the story of the forest. Trees add beauty and biophilia to the workspace.
WholeTrees supplied round timber trusses and branching columns on behalf of Morton Building, Inc. for this stall barn and living quarters. The organic shapes add character to this equestrian facility. WholeTrees columns, beams and trusses are available for Morton Building Inc. nationwide.
This elegant pavilion in the San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park is set against a backdrop of rolling hills and exotic wildlife. WholeTrees provided the structural system for the main event hall, including columns, beams, rafters, and two soaring structural arches. These round timber elements interact with steel frames and dimensional lumber within the rest of the structure, providing both structural synergy and organic visual contrast.

The Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts in Brookfield has continued its tradition of avant-garde support for the arts by commissioning a facility enhancement in partnership with WholeTrees. Designed to combine the beauty of nature with sustainable state-of-the-art technology, The Burke Colonnade (pictured above) will be located on the west side of the building, and installation will be completed by June 2017. Additional concept renderings depict a proposed Audience Canopy and Bandshell that could expand the potential to offer additional outdoor performances and serve as a flexible, welcoming space for students, art camps, and other educational programs.
