Buffalo Treehouse is a New York-based design and build firm that is committed to using natural, repurposed, and upcycled materials to create structures, objects, and spaces that transcend the mundane, while maintaining an overall “humanness” in both scope and scale.


Each of our projects are developed in an organic fashion, taking into account site specifics, budgetary considerations, and client input. Our goal is to help you achieve results that are truly spectacular, both aesthetically and in terms of comfort and utility. A common refrain you’ll hear from many of our clients is that the work produced by Buffalo Treehouse has something about it that just “feels” right.

We provide products and services that cater to both the Commercial and Residential sector, and also offer Interior Design and Custom Art and Furniture commissions for select clients.
