In November, we had the pleasure of welcoming Peter Yu of Yu Structural Engineers into our office for an engaging presentation about his past and current single-family residential, multi-unit residential, and commercial structures.  Peter and Steven had collaborated extensively during Steven’s tenure at his prior firm, and it was great for the rest of the office to be introduced to Peter and his body of work.

While the projects that Steven and Peter had collaborated on were elegant, modern residences, the highlight of Peter’s presentation was more fantastical in nature:  a treehouse home.  The house, comprised of three separate structures, required Peter and his team to build a 60 ft artificial tree capable of supporting a fully-functional family home.  Starting with clay models and working their way up to the life-sized final product, Peter’s team tackled the challenge of making their clients improbable dream home a reality.  Thanks for sharing, Peter!  We are so impressed.
