There is something I find so exquisitely graceful about trees and leaves.  I’m drawn to them, and I’m drawn to everything that resembles them.  Leaf House is a pavilion for a private residence in northern Sydney, Australia.  A design by the London-based firm Undercurrent Architects, the Leaf House engages its surrounding vegetation and terrain.  The roof is formed by giant overlapping leaf shapes, held up by twisting , trunk-like steel beams.  A curving sheet of molded glass winds around and encloses the space while still allowing panoramic views.  Beneath the sandstone floor, private rooms allow more complete escape from the heat of the sun.
